To give a definite answer, after thinking it over:

It works, for quite some extensions.  The main problem is this:
If it does NOT work (process crashes) there is no way to find out why.

It is nearly impossible to debug because you end up with all the
machine code from the extensions/dlls mapped into the process
and the debugger has no info about it.
