The possibility to share binary code among multiple programs by placing it
in libraries that also contain a bit of compiler magic. They'll also allow
Lazarus to dynamically load components (without recompiling) or for anyone
to easily have a plugin system cause you can share strings, classes, etc.
without any problems between the "libraries" and the main program.
In Delphi you might recognize them from their bpl extension (in FPC it will
be ppl).
