Yeah, I don't plan on adding in Shared Object support as it will break
a lot in the interim (Basically anything that uses ncurses for the
meantime.)  I'm just checking a few things out for now.  I'm also
quite new to DSLinux and am also just figuring out how the whole build
system works.

Sorry, Dynamic Shared Objects, basically runtime loading of Shared
objects via dlopen, dlsym and family.

Tommorow or the next day I'm going to mess around a little bit more
with the build system, and such not then I will probably start looking
at Pixil and trying to figure out which applets are loaded dynamically
and maybe start on that work.
