As oliver kindly pointed out yes I do only load libs when they are
needed by the patch. And I do so with [declare -lib] to make it well visible
and have all libs loaded at one spot in the patch. At this point I don't
want to care about the single-object-lib versus multi-object-lib
difference which is the reason I started this thread. [declare] sadly behaves
differently for these two cases, a situation which I think should be
improved in order to make lib loading easier for novices.
