This being said I wonder whether a more monolithic view of the two libraries could be adopted for this project.
The way existing software is written, it would be a hack to try to combine them.
Assuming they are that tightly coupled, they might have to be a matched pair. It's too early to say.
P96 and Cgx managed without it, so we know it's possible to at least patch in.
