and any dependancy on .so or runtime loading is completely unaccpetable
as some systems simply dont support dynamic loading or shared libs

also a filter system which can dynamically load filters as shared libs
is not that usefull unless you want to support binary only filters
but why should we support that? or even design anything toward making that
easy to do?
that said iam not against optionally supporting dynamically loaded .so 
filters but i think this is not really worth the work ...

i too hope we will eventually have a audio filter layer but this years SOC
project is just about video and that is by itself more than large enough
