In this case yes (though when I responded I hadn't yet looked at the
implementation, so I wasn't sure).

Now that I've glanced at the implementation I don't see a problem with
what it's doing since in no case does libverto export a symbol name
that could conflict with one of the existing event loop libraries'

I meant dlopen(shared_object_name_or_path, RTLD_LOCAL | RTLD_GROUP).
