IMHO the architectural decision for a monolith (==static linkage)
often reduces the management bloat of dynamic loading or similar
"extension" approaches that you end up with in a microkernel

I would rather say that your actual architecture in a sense of code
structure and separation of concerns is the key to suckless, than
favouring something similar to dynamic linkage.
