Furthermore, it has at least this serious bug in its new functionality:

  LT_WITH_LTDL needs to be made configurable)

Hmm... I'll look into this when --patch-23 is resolved.

This concern was just because cvs diff hadn't picked up all of -- patch-23
right?  Everything seems to work fine here...

Regardless, LTDL_INIT is not documented at the moment, and I'm not sure we want to explicitly support use of libltdl except as a subpackage. Although it has been possible to do so for quite some time (if only because libtool
itself has done so on and off over the last few years), we have never
really *designed* an interface for it. Post-2.0, we can always firm up a
long term interface, document it and *then* make a commitment to support
that interface in the future.
