i don't know enough about security, but in probing for flaws in that idea I'd approach from:

* what happens if an application can't reach the central md5 store?
* Can I 'man-in-the-middle' and inject badLibrary with corresponding md5 to make it look good
- i.e. spoof the central repository
* can i get a badLoader into the application
