Subject [jira] [Comment Edited] (MESOS-1224) Add dynamic loadable library abstraction to stout.

So I took a look.  

Couple of quick notes: I wouldn't interject specific symbol + lookup in the general purpose
library - stout as it has implied semantics.  

I'll try to push some examples to my testing repo. 

was (Author: tstclair):
I'll take a look shortly, FWIW wrapping w/shared_ptr on returns is usually good form given
that it will live in stout. 

Also the base class will need a couple of basic signatures for version checking + potential

> Adding a first class primitive, abstraction and process for dynamic library writing and
loading can make it easier to extend inner workings of Mesos. Making it possible to have dynamic
loadable resource allocators, isolators, containerizes, authenticators and much more.
> I think this could be a powerful feature, as we get even more extensible and flexible
ways of setting up Mesos - but also for isolating dependencies and complexity in external
libraries and to ease experimentation with new features. For example, imagine a loadable allocators
which contains a VM (Lua, Python, ...) which makes it possible to try out new allocator algorithms
without forcing those dependencies into the project.
> BenH and I chatted about the concrete details and I will follow up with small write-up/proposal.
