Could this help us make up for the loss of HaikuWare? on android, you click a link and HaikuDepot ask to install it. Maybe also a setting option to avoid non-haikudepot sw to be installed will be fine as a security feature. ...

It is a rarely known fact but at least on Linux some shared libraries have a main() function and can be called as executables, including the dynamic loader, usually it just prints the library name and version. $ /lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 Usage: ld.so [OPTION]... EXECUTABLE-FILE [ARGS-FOR-PROGRAM...] You have invoked `ld.so', the helper program for shared library executables. ... $ /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libc.so.6 ...
