If you use libltdl to do module loading rather than raw dlopen()

I hesitate. What are the pros and cons? I do not really want to add
yet another dependency to my program.


  - Need to distribute libltdl source with your package.
  - Need to enable configuring/building/using libltdl in your package.


  - Cross-platform module loading portability.
  - Module library dependencies for OSs that otherwise don't support
  - API is similar to using dlopen(), but with some value-added
  - Provides a "module" paradigm for static builds as a fall-back or
    to assist with debugging.
