Yes, that's right. Maybe think of it though as a statically-linked shared library. We don't have dynamic linking yet, and when we do it's going to look very different to ELF (possibly/probably?). I want to get simple statically-linked modules working first, before adding a dynamic linker to the mix! In fact I know some people from Mozilla are working on dynamic linking, but I haven't looked into what they've done in detail.
