Yes, that's what I'm doing now. Works fine, except that you have
multiple copies of the code.

Note that plugins themselves are shared libraries; it wouldn't take
much to extend the plugin API to include a function to allow plugins
themselves to load other shared libraries, as long as they do so
before trying to look at (or use) the plugin buffer.
