 * \file SDL_loadso.h
 * System dependent library loading routines
 * Some things to keep in mind:                                        
 * - These functions only work on C function names.  Other languages may
 *   have name mangling and intrinsic language support that varies from
 *   compiler to compiler.
 * - Make sure you declare your function pointers with the same calling
 *   convention as the actual library function.  Your code will crash
 *   mysteriously if you do not do this.
 * - Avoid namespace collisions.  If you load a symbol from the library,
 *   it is not defined whether or not it goes into the global symbol
 *   namespace for the application.  If it does and it conflicts with
 *   symbols in your code or other shared libraries, you will not get
 *   the results you expect. :)
