I've been using DLL/SOs in packages with much success for some time
now. Don't know why you need any hacks to get this going though:
it works right out of the box for me.
The situation is a little different for frozen apps without shared
libs though: the extension modules will become top-level modules.
Haven't frozen those kinds of apps yet, but it should still work
out of the box (except maybe when you pass pickles from an
app using top-level modules to one using in-package modules).
