The following is related to bug #0021680:
The idea is to let libraryB intercept calls to libraryA.
1- How can this be accomplished in Linux?
Using ordinals would have been a way, but Linux does use them.
Another venture (to be tested yet) may be dynamic loading of libraryA.
2- Does this mechanism take place even when the function is imported
under another name?
function functionB: char; stdcall;
3- Should there be a warning about the name hiding?
4- The link http://blogs.embarcadero.com/eboling/2010/02/16/5656
mentions: 'The linux support is a major PITA to implement'. Does that
refer to implementing a non flat namespace linker model? In other words,
difficult but not impossible?
