[LAD] A question to plugin host devs

Hello all,

I wonder what are the pros and cons of using RTLD_NODELETE as
a flag to dlopen() and call dlclose () as soon as the required
symbols are loaded.

The alternative is to leave all shared object handles open until 
the host terminates.

What are you doing in your plugin host (and why) ?
