It does do some black magic in order to get XS modules working (the
.so files you mention), but in general it does seem to work.. mostly.

The lack of reliability puts me off it a bit, but I have to admit it's
very handy when I want to take an app quickly from a dev box to some
servers, and I don't want to spend all wee building debian packages
for the dependencies.


Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer
Things fall apart; the center cannot hold
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world
