Just an idea.. I'm not sure what you want, but if you want to control
exactly what libraries are linked (runtime) with a program, wouldn't it
be possible to have a separate set of links to libs under each program?
Like /Programs/Foo/Current/Links/lib and then set LD_LIBRARY_PATH to
this before running a binary?
