I am pretty sure he asked if the file name of the library could be
different at run time than at compile time, which would be the only
reason to justify using an environment variable.

By the way, using an environment variable to load a dynamic library is a
terrible idea in terms of security. Let us not do it.

So basically, we should add 100+ lines of ugly code just because these
guys are unable to follow the same rules as any other library?

I vote no.
