Plugin architecture -- "factory" versus concrete constructor? Are plugin handles domain-specific?

Will
don't use "void *"
Greg
Discovery for dynamic plugins? Current stuff works for Debian, but not for Red Hat. Consensus on krbdev list for using config fragments. OK for Simo?
Simo
yes
Zhanna
krbdev list prefers deferred loading. Want to give admins option to load everything at startup.
Greg
probably not a benefit for our use cases.
Will
agree with Greg.
Zhanna
Our experiences at Novell -- want to laod everything up front.
Will
For the DAL, when LDAP was introduced, DB2 was enabled by default, but not LDAP.
Greg
Is autodiscovery a problem for Will?
Will
OpenSSL dependency of PKINIT caused conflicts... most people using Solaris are not using smart cards.
Greg
OpenSSL conflict was a global initializer issue, so not really an autodiscovery problem.

Will says something about keeping stuff out of user-editable configs.
