If you deploy one executable, ok, but if you want to create a handfull
of executables (following unix logic of many small programs) then you
have a problem.
EVERY executable will have the same code again again again, i think
libraries have been created to address exactly this issue.
about the library hell, why we cant use lib versions ?
libpas.so.2.4.4 for fpc 2.4.4
libpas.so.2.6.1 for fpc 2.6.1
the only problem i see is the lack of a sane way to export class
instances to/from the libraries.
