But imagine if we require a dll to create apps for a operating system.
omg, that would look like vb!!! =)

It´s a no-no-no for me.

There are some factors which make this problem less problematic with
Symbian OS. The operating system has only 1 binary of one version
being distributed. It is not going to be compiled with odd compilers
that change name mangling, so the libraries on symbian os have exactly
1 name mangling, which is from one of the recent GCCs. That should be
enougth to avoid external dlls.
