Maybe a bit off topic, but as far as I understood, OSGI based servers (e.g. Virgo) support
this type of scenario. With multiple versions of shared libraries and the possibility to deploy
newer versions.
Of course every piece of code must be well behaved, osgi-compliant, etc...

since each process is isolated (more or less).
Does somebody know how it works on .NET side ? Does it suffer from the same weakness ?
