Maybe, but if a platform supports shared objects/libraries, I believe it
will always be possible to make libvlc a shared library, and link
plugins against it.
I don't know how Darwin works, but in my experience a good test is:
if it works on AIX (which sucks raw eggs through a very thin straw), it can
work everywhere ;-)
