The frameworks linked in an applications must reside in the
FRAMEWORK_INSTALL_DIR that you set in the makefile to let NSBundle finding
its resources.
The exception to this is a dladdr() working correctly that let moving the
framework in another dir without a ricompilation.

Yes with the limitation above.

A framework could depends to another one (linked with LIBRARIES_DEPEND_UPON),
so when you load it dynamically NSBundle check for multiple NSFramework_*
classes to create respective bundles.

This was already possible, now if the system supports it we can get its
path correctly without using the static ivar of NSFramework_xxx

Anyhow there are yet some problems/bugs:

1. If you load a framework dynamically in +load you haven't ready the list
   of classes.
2. Loading a framework that uses GSXML (that is in a bundle) with OCUnit,
   it classes are in the list of the framework classes. (if I remember
   correctly)
