The reason for my decision is to make sure that extension to Emacs are
free.  The aim is to maximize what users can do while remaining free.

If they could dynamically load free libraries, surely their capabilities
would be increased.

remain free even if it means you taking a blunt instrument to
what users can do with their freedom.
