I think you could probably do this by linking an empty library
against each of the implementation pieces. However, I'm not certain that
ld.so doesn't load all libraries when the "filter" one is loaded. (which
would kill any performance gains)
Is anyone actually using the hp filtered libraries? How much does
it affect performance?
