Yes there are users and some are using it with C++ and exceptions across 
loaded module boundaries.

It is different to cexp and not related.

The libdl implementation provides support for the POSIX dlopen, dlclose 
etc family of functions. The target loader can load ELF from object 
files or archives and it can also load RAP (RTEMS Application Format) 
files. The rtems-ld host tool can help you manage the modules you wish 
to load.
