Y'mean something like the php.ini "extension" directive, or the dl()


for more info on those.  Note, though, that this functionality won't be
enabled on every server, often for security reasons.

I'm not sure how much of an issue it really needs to be, though.  Are
you running into people who are surprised that your programs won't work
on their server?  (Could this mean that you need to take a look at how
clearly the requirements are communicated?)
