I don't use a Mac, but my understanding is that .dylib is for shared
libraries, while plugins are .so (or .bundle but nobody does that). And
shared libraries can be used as plugins but *not* the other way around.
.so seems more natural for ipelets, since I doubt you want to be able to
link against them.
