Comment (by robe):

 I would be interested too out of plain curiosity and jsut to make sure
 there isn't some other ogre in the code. I question if its better than
 staically linked though and suspect it may be worse.  Doesn't the
 postgis.dll depend on libxml2-2.dll anyway in which case it would have to
 load both and possibly more costly.

 Is the cost based on the size of the dll or is the cost the same
 regardless of size? In which case you are paying doubly -- one to load
 each dll in memory as opposed to one dll.

 I mean if I have a dynamically linked libxml2-2.dll -- postgis.dll doesn't
 even load if the dll is not present in the PostgreSQL/bin folder as I
 recall.  Will have to double-check that.
