Doesn't that require Scheme to be linked via the engine? Are we moving to the 
load_library_backend() method?

in qofsession.c:

  /* FIXME: this should use dlopen(), instead of guile/scheme,
   *    to load the modules.  Right now, this requires the engine to
   *    link to scheme, which is an obvious architecture flaw.
   *    XXX this is fexed below, in the non-gnucash version. Cut
   *    over at some point.

I agree it's not worth changing gnc-backend-file-v2 to the new method, but I 
thought the new backends were not going to be loaded as gnc-modules anymore?
