Hmm. I had a look at the setdlopenflags() and accompanying 
infrastructure, and it seems you can
set many flags to dlopen() through this call, is that right?

If it is, is it a good idea to call the OSX-specific routine 
setdlopenflags() too, even though
it will only support the "use global namespace" flag? Or is that the 
only flag you can reasonably
pass to dlopen() anyway?
