Nice work, thanks!

Any plans for accepting --library-path and --preload ?

For the record, I am depending on these since before musl and now with
musl. Any other approach to achieve flexible runtime binding between
binaries and libraries brings unfortunately extra constraints. Those
constraints (e.g. on the relative placement of binaries and libraries)
are too limiting and/or inconvenient to be practical in our environment.
