I think he meant that he wants the ability to hook into the
load/unload of some arbitrary DLL/DSO, so like a DLL/DSO local
atexit() as it were.

This is trivial to implement, simply a static object defined per
DLL/DSO which accepts a list of bound functions to call when it gets

Something kinda cool would be combining that hook with the
pointer-to-DLL/DSO code I sent you, so you could have code like:

// Tell me when the DLL/DSO owning this string gets unloaded so I can
// delete my use of it
dll_from_ptr(str)->on_unload(std::bind(this, &remove_string, str));
