	Seriously though - why package a lib in a special place for
an application instead of just statically linking the bits the application

In the case several instance of the application are run at the same 
time, you would waste a great deal of memory with statically linked lib.

	No. Multiple instances of the same application can always share
the same read only pages backed by the file they came from.
ah, ok. ;) so I join myself to your question.
