Bill: unloading the shared probably means he does dlclose() (after having done dlopen initially). Furthermore, it probably means he does that on libpythonxy.so. I'm a bit puzzled that it also affects _ssl.so (unless he dlcloses that as well) - Python, on its own, will never dlclose any library.
In any case, calling dlclose to unload a shared library has no effect on Python whatsoever. No callback is triggered, and no interpreter code gets executed in that process.
