> Recent versions of Darwin let you dlopen() shared libraries (e.g. looking at the PAM modules in Lion, they're MH_DYLIB not MH_BUNDLE; on the other hand, libtool -module creates MH_BUNDLE). So the old distinction between the two is probably not as important as it once was, and you could install install modules with the dylib suffix and it not be so confusing. Depends too on how far back (pre-Leopard?) you want to support.

That said, the convention on Darwin is that loadable modules have the .so suffix, and one would want to have a pretty good reason before defying this.
