I don't see the necessity of this. Take bash for instance: it uses
readline, which uses ncurses. 
I'd like to see a /lib/ncurses.so which uses definitions on the root
fs, in /etc. 

Why is this not possible?

human beings to be true and often by the same people: 'I can't so you 
mustn't', and 'I can but you mustn't.' - The Hipcrime Vocab by Chad C. Mulligan
