It seems to me that this, unfortunately, isn't possible.  It looks like
the dlopen() equivalants (NSCreateObjectFileImageFromFile() and
friends) can only be used on "bundles", not dynamic libraries.  At
least if it is possible, I don't know the right API call to make it
happen (NSCreateObjectFileImageFromFile() fails when used on the Kerberos
framework).  But I sure hope I'm wrong :-/
