There is 256 ram in iphone 3g, which I believe is enough to
run quite a few programs.

I can relate to that :-)
My reasoning was that since the racket caches the PLaneT libraries
locally, then it must be possible to add support for locally
stored PLaneT libraries without too much work.

I am unsure whether an app can load its own set of dynamic libraries
without any problems. I know that two different app can't share
the same dynamic library.
