hi Guenter, Frank,

no doubt, the central repository for externals is great idea.

No doubt, loading externals on demand is better than using -lib
option.  Any cyclone object may be loaded on demand, except for
operators (talking about linux build, which is what I use).

Not sure, though, what is your expected target installation -- do
you expect everybody would have all externs from cvs installed?
This is going to be huge...

If not, how would one make the selection?

but are not they harder to resolve that way?

do you mean one should simply #include all the shared code?
or maybe one should not use shared code at all?
