If we're going to do this, I'd rather we didn't go the route of magic
command line programs, but rather having a shared library which exports a
well defined C ABI which is pointed to by an environment variable, this
can then be dlopened and used in a sensible type safe way, with a single
command line program to allow shell scripts access.
