Are you suggesting to pass the object name on software build time?
If so, it may load incorrect libraries when DBA renamed its filename.
At least, PostgreSQL cannot prevent DBA to rename library filenames
even if they try to deploy "pg_strom.so", "pg_strom.20151106.so" and
"pg_strom.20151030_bug.so" on same directory.

I don't know portable way to get library name on run-time, so, all we
can use are environment specific.
 - dladdr(3) : specific to glibc
 - /proc/<PID>/maps : specific to Linux

Thus, I thought the backend assist is the most reasonable way here.

OK, I'll once remove TextOut, then add it later.
