You can't just shove random bits of code into DSOs unless they are 
behind some encapsulation interface (like DBD) which allows function 
calls to be turned into 

You can split random bits of code from apr-util out into separate shared 
libraries, of course - is that what you mean?

Or do you mean taking random bits of apr-util code and isolating their 
dependencies on third-party libraries by having them load said libraries 
at run-time and use all symbols via dlsym()?
