What I'm saying is that you *must not* have any special platform 
knowledge to use apr_dso_open_ex().  Which means that picking from all
of the flags and mapping the dlopen API as 'our new apr_dso_open' isn't
the right solution.

Can you define a few problems you want to solve, and we will map them
to appropriate combinations of flags, and determine if they can be
1) supported, 2) ignored, 3) not implemented across our platforms?
