Dynloading memory management seems a bit misguided. Just how much
flexibility does an app truly need? Relinking is easy enough. Or maybe
compile one file and relink. That definitely beats some of the old
techniques of recompile-the-world.

But dynload? That seems excessive.

Please move that TODO into the STATUS file. We can't track stuff if it is
all over the repository. The STATUS file does /not/ contain "stuff for
release" but also contains ideas and todos.
