Thanks for help. But it is not exactly solution I am looking for. I
would like to do it from python script. For example

update_env() #<- this function will change LD_LIBRARY_PATH
import extension_that_depends_on_shared_library

I think I should have permissions to do it. (more over users of my
scripts should have permissions )
