This is obviously a problem too, but the other option is to create yet
another library to dynamically link to.  Not to mention requiring a C++
compiler as well.  I know Miguel tends to be concerned about such
things.  Though I am not sure Ximian would officially support such a
thing... or even make use of it.  I think that a major supporter would
be nice.
