I can't figure it out right now, but /lib/ld-linux.so can be told
which libraries to use explicitly. This is better than
$LD_LIBRARY_PATH because it is more granular.

That's like calling e.g. /usr/local/stow/myprog/bin/exec directly,
rather than putting the directory in the $PATH and including all
other executables from there.

Or like the difference between python's

  from sys import path
  from sys import *

when all you need is sys.path.

Am I making sense?
