Generally this works out fine, but what if an application tries to load a
specific library which is present but happen to be of different ELF class. In
that case, the current error message doesn't make much sense infact it is little
confusing. In this case, the message should say exactly, what the error is and
that is application is trying to load a wrong (ELF class) library.
