I'm not sure how this would help though.  Here's my problem:

- I have a server application that uses plug in modules
- Each module conforms to an API -- there are a certain number of
functions that it *must* have
- On load, I use dlopen with RTLD_NOW
- I use dlsym() to find all of the functions listed in the API and obtain
pointers to them
- Each of the function pointers are stored in a struct
- When the server runs, I simply run the pointer:
	(*(struct->fcn_ptr))(arg1, ...)
