Dynamically loading a bundle with NSLinkModule, and unloading it with
NSUnLinkModule, seems to support this as well.

It appears that Apple has also added
  #pragma CALL_ON_LOAD
  #pragma CALL_ON_UNLOAD
that look like they should do the same thing as the gcc constructor
and destructor attributes.  (And they seem to DTRT in my tests.)

I'm doing my testing on 10.2, I hope they haven't broken anything in
this department in 10.3...
