Another downside is that if you pick a version of the library to interface with,
it might be newer or older than the version of that library shipped by an OS
distro. So they'd only be able to use a version of Parrot that uses that same
version of libsqlite.so (just an example) that they are using for their other
systems. And it gets more complicated the more libraries are used. I don't know
how hard this will be in practice, but it's something to consider.
