  :( I think I can see where the next problem is going to arise already.

  If we move el to the front of the list each time, what's going to happen
when we eventually return from LoadLibrary, and el.prev is still pointing at
the now-deallocated stack frames where LoadLibrary created its temporary

  I was thinking of adding a stack (possibly only two-level) instead of
relinking the single el member to the front, but either way we have to find
some way to unlink it again when the stack unwinds.
