linking everything together to one static package is basically the only
option in that case. Statically linking libraries into shared objects is
problematic - especially under non-x86 architectures.

Using some magic to enable static linking of plugins into the daemon
will introduce a lot of code complexity, I guess. But if you make a
schematic but technical suggestion[*] how you would implement this we
can probably talk about this in a far more constructive way..


[*] By that I basically mean simplified pseudo-code ;)
