 I had similar question too. This is dynamic loading of an executable and all shared libraries, linked with it. 
For that, we're commonly using a Lua script in Ned, which is the case for init scripts. But the question may be another:
What if I have my own OS personality with its own init mechanism, but with desire to use L4Re loader. Could we load an 
executable via RPC to loader (that  is in moe or in ned), without using a Lua script? Or, even, maybe, there is a client
library for calling loader from other programs? I mean, the C (maybe, but worse, C++ one) callable API, instead Lua bindings.

PS: what is the purpose of 'loader' package? We already have implementation of loader interface in moe and ned...
