  That's a far bigger project but likely more useful as a whole.

This reminds me about one idea I had about the plugins patch (sorry,
I am permanently have no time these days thus I did not write about
this before). As far as I can remember the current plugins patch
uses Windows specific function. Instead I would suggest to use ltdl
wrapper that provides unified cross-platform API for loading shared
libraries. ltdl consist of one header and one source file and the
license allows one to include it in any library. For example, in xmlsec
I just added ltdl.[h|c] files into source code and compile them
into xmlsec library.

  Sounds interesting, do you have a pointer ?
