And use the operating system's run-time linker?  That would make for 
very long library names... but maybe that wouldn't be too terrible.

Do you mean in memory, or by installed programs that aren't necessarily 
running?  To take care of the first problem, wouldn't it be possible to 
maintain a count of the processes that currently have a library mapped 
into memory?  Could GODI take care of the second problem?
