Why would it be wasting memory with this route?  I know that, at least
under Solaris, .so code segments are placed in shared memory (hence
'shared libraries')...  Wouldn't this actually save memory since having
100 servers running will have only a fraction of the amount of code
space used for the modules as normal?  To me this would be a good think.

Is that what you mean by the 90% case???  And if that is the case,
then this concept and idea should be touted as a thing to do.  Although
I _hardly_ would want a static-only or dynamic-only concept...  One
in which you have static modules and have the option of loading static
modules seems a nice compromise.

Or am I lost?
