Creates a library loader (a header and implementation file),
which is a wrapper for dlopen or direct linking with given library.
The loader makes it possible to have the same client code for both cases,
and also makes it easier to write code using dlopen (and also provides
a standard way to do so, and limits the ugliness just to generated files).
