Meh, a good discussion is a healthy thing.  I am seeing things presented
here that I cannot refute in any meaningful way, either due to lack of
technical savvy or just because the points are good.

Now I need to go look at dlopen().

I seem to remember, though, that even the old 4.3 distribution of BSD
made some reference about ld being able to link an object file into an
already running executable...or is this something so totally different
that the sky might as well be purple with yellow spots?
