It's not that bad on Mac OS X, Bruno!
You can install frameworks as much and often as you and your disk can
afford (do you use Xgrid, TWAIN, VideoConference, Python, Tk, or
ForceFeedback and DiscRecording frameworks?). The frameworks are
lying around, sometimes in more than just one version. An application
can use one when it binds to it at compilation time. A framework is
just another kind of a shared library, and it's completely different
from a kernel extension (kext)! Other applications do not use a
particular framework because they do not know of its existence.
You can easily check which frameworks an application uses, on the
otool -L /Applications/<application>.app/Contents/MacOS/<application>
or, if you're *very* curious:
apply 'otool -L "%1"' /Applications/*/Contents/MacOS/*
apply 'otool -L "%1"' /Applications/Utilities/*/Contents/MacOS/*
(Before make your Terminal save more than 10.000 lines!)
Never be led astray onto the path of virtue.
