It works fine for building 4Suite. It also works for building a bunch 
of my own code. I tried it on a couple of modules that built fine 
without it, and they still work. Should this be in the LDSHARED 
variable in the python Makefile. That way all bundles would be built 
with the -bundle_loader option? This seems a lot easier then having all 
extension module writers ifdef their code to use environ.
