Relying on a loose bundle of DLLs to represent pluggable modules is no
longer the preferred mechanism on Windows.  Instead, modules should be
packaged and distributed as signed side-by-side assemblies.  The
assemblies can be loaded at run-time via a manifest.

The existing KFW libraries have significant issues when linked to IIS
modules partly because it is impossible to ensure that all IIS modules
have the same KFW version as dependencies.
