You don't need to do anything special to port to dlcompat, it just looks 
like libdl (and dlfcn.h) to you guys.  If you can just port it to 
regular dlopen()/dlclose()/etc. semantics and link -ldl if necessary it 
should be fine.

dlcompat still doesn't let you UNload dylib's (that's just the way 
darwin's dyld and Mach-O works), so if you need to be able to 
dynamically load/unload stuff on the fly, you still have to use bundles 
(libtool modules, presumably gmodules as well).
