What happens if I have one assembly that needs libfoo.so.1,
and another that wants libfoo.so.2? The conf.d scheme seems to break
down in that case (though arguably no worse than the current scheme).
I don't mind the .d scheme, but I'm not really sure what it solves;
the runtime could just as well know to look for libfoo.so.*, and
pick the highest number that it finds, no?
