Why do I need that?  I want to load the library that
the user has placed into his lib directory.  I don't
care for the version and other things as there can be
only one such library.

Depends on how you do it.  I think it should be
possible to check the platform, load the real dll once
and then this dll takes over.

As I understand it, a linux user must place a dll/map
pair into his library directory, while the windows
user can simply copy the gtk-sharp dll's, right?
