Hi! and dynamic loading on Linux

Hello STk'ers,

As I'm fairly new to this mailing list, I thought I'd introduce
myself. My name is Jeremy Schulman, and I've recently become
"enlightened" to STklos.

After reading much material on Scheme, STKlos, Dylan, and some of the
archived mailing-list, I think I'm geared up to do some work. :-)

One topic I noticed on the archived mailing-list was the issue of
dynamic loading of extension on the Linux platform. I'm not aware if
anyone has implemented this. In an attempt to get away from "real
work" I felt it was my obligation as the-new-guy-on-the-block to
contribute. So I added dynamic loading.

I used gcc 2.6.2 and libdld.a (latest version). I'm currently using
kernel 1.1.83. (I would like to use ELF, but I don't have the space
for elf libs at the moment.)

The following is a small script file:

If dynamic loading for Linux has not yet been added to the
distribution, I would like to offer this up for the next release.
