This is a *terrific* set of questions. Let me stir the pot a little.

There is a parallel set of issues: we would actually like to reduce the
use of shared libraries in favor of confined subsystems. Shared
libraries are appropriate where the performance of a procedure call is
required or an extensive shared memory interface exists. Confined
subsystems should be used for relationships between larger subsystems.

The versioning and retention issues are identical. I just wanted to
point out that we need to address this problem in both places.

I'll respond to some of your questions momentarily.
