The problem with DLL-hell is

(a) the search path (windows, system, rest of path)
(b) the COM registry
(c) no versioned binding.

Now Windows, what, 3.x, was worse in that you could only have one DLL in
memory called 'hook.dll' or 'clock.dll'; anything like that loaded and your
app would get a handle to the existing one, even if it had nothing to do
with your own hook.dll. That was *really* bogus.

Drop in libs work, if done nicely, where that means the classpath is handled
