The one remaining question I have here is how does a library link to its
dependency. The obvious approach seems to be for filesystem::sl to link to
system::sl and for filesystem::dl to link to system::dl, right? (And a
hypothetical filesystem::hl would probably link to system::sl.)

(Exceptions where the dependency is always ::dl or always ::sl
notwithstanding. The question is about the case where it also supports both,
or all three.)
