dso are until now  still something to take with care with TeX because they
depend on the underlying  OS, something that we try to avoid.
For example, it's better that the location and dependencies of dso r are
resolved in
the context of a tds tree, because otherwise we are lost.
And of course a format should not see these differences at all.
For this reasons ConTeXt has its own loader swiglib but LaTeX can have his
own as well probably based on kpathsea.
