I have trouble understanding that.  Before dynamic libraries, we used
static libraries.  Each library was a .o file, made by compilation.

But how can each program have its own version of one and the same
library?  Does Rust store all libraries as **source code**
and recompile each library each time that library is linked
into a program?

I don't know anything technically about Rust.  Others here may be in
the same boat with me.  So please explain the things you need us to
