Oops!  Forgot about that question - pass.  What happens anyway with
multiple interpreters?
Does dl_load_file() get called once per use/require'd .xs file per
interpreter instance?  Does it push multiple copies of the dll handles
onto dl_librefs?  dl_unload_files simply do in reverse whatever
dl_load_files did.

If *you* don't know then I certainly don't!
