My immediate reaction is that ld.so is already too complicated and I
would hate to see it get even more complicated. Also, I'd like to
understand why these HPC apps require _thousands_ of DSOs, and what
their lifecycles are; I'm not convinced we even know what the
_problem_ is here, let alone the appropriate solution.
