I think that's two key points that should be clearly understood by all
parts in the discussion: no matter how we load, we need a binding.

An automated binding (e.g. GI) would benefit any loading approaches, and
probably is the only sensible way to go, especially for more that one
non-C language.

Apart that, I basically +1 everything Lex said, and don't have much to add.
