IIRC, dlopen() is not a good idea, either: The symbols are needed exactly
in the case that the front end application (which links against libxine)
is linked against the X libs. dlopen()ing would map the libs a second
time, which AFAICT breaks things like XLock() which must be called on the
same instance of the X client lib, or else bad races may occur...
Please CC me (or the BTS) on any answers, as I'm not on -devel!
