Something that came up on irc tonight is letting be
dlopen()d without RTLD_GLOBAL.  Currently Mozilla does this.

We could support this with the new ABI.  First we would have to have a
function vector like JNI does, both for exported CNI functions, and
for functions to which gcj generates direct calls.  The latter (and
perhaps the former) could just be part of the class' otable.

Second, I think we'd have to arrange to look up _Jv_RegisterClasses
explicitly, using dlsym(), before registering classes from a .so.
