Well, there are arguments for both choices here.  We could look into
allowing choice here in some way.  (No, I don't have a good idea.)

It would be wrong to encourage the development of non-portable applications using libltdl. If someone needs to develop a non-portable application that relies on OS-specific features, they can just use dlopen(). Dlopen() is not difficult to use.
