Why aren't modules reloadable?

In Rails only classes are reloadable, but the remove_const hack seems
to apply both to classes and modules. Does anybody know which is the
reason modules are not supported?

After reading ticket http://dev.rubyonrails.org/ticket/5821, the
reason might be there’s no known way to remove modules from non-
reloadable classes.
