Simply using ordinary libraries would fall spectacularly short of what you
desire. The package system as known from Delphi allows the metadata of
types to be shared between binary modules, something that you *can't* do
with libraries. If it would be that easy it would have been done already.

Instead that functionality requires intensive support by both the compiler
and the RTL. We are on our way there, but we aren't there yet. Sooner or
later that will come in Lazarus as well.
