Requiring a to run apps created using Megido would be no
different than requiring a to run GNOME apps.

Alternatively you could create the shared library on a per-application
basis, e.g. This is a bad hack though - you really
should just make a megido shared library. It is not as big a deal in the
UNIX world, because there are not the same versioning and etc. problems
that Windows DLLs have.
