Making it easier for the programmer to specify the library he wants will put
a halt on "this discussion returning in some way or the other every 6-9
months". What is recurring in these discussions also is the non- or
badly-documented ibase60dyn.initializeibase60('whatever.so'), or equivalent,
being brought up at one stage as "the" solution that should make an end to
the discussion. So if a libraryfilename property would only solve the
recurring discussions and miscomprehensions (assuming that is a shared
objective) then it would already be a big step forward.
