Well I wish it just automagically worked. 

I have no idea about what dlopen() means.

If we compare this to the Windows world where then entire machine
requires a reboot about 20 million times, then I have no qualms about
restarting Apache after this module is installed. In my experience I find
Apache restarts quite a smooth process.
