loadlib already exists (as an addon) and defines a simple protocol for
loading and unloading a library. It's a good start.
Ah, but which loadlib? I know of at least three lua extensions by that
loadlib must be an addon because it cannot be written in ANSI C.
And it can't be written in POSIX C either. It's one of the harder
things to get portable. I think we should seriously consider stealing
the dynamic loading code from another tool, possibly Python, to avoid
having to go through that headache ourselves.
