Perhaps it gives some idea about what the creators of dlopen(), dlsym(),
and dlclose() thought their purpose was.  Or maybe people guess that
from the "dl" at the start of each function name.  (Hint: it probably
doesn't stand for "dumb luck".)

Or maybe not everybody agrees with your particular definition of what
dynamic linking requires ...
