library symbols

does someone know how to know which functions are required from an
executable ?
 Maybe if mu's executables don't need some functions that are in the
libc and glibc, it would be possible to fracture the libcs a little by
removing all symbols that are not needed.
A severe drawback is that this would cause problems to new installed
softwares in mu, because they could need things that were removed.

Always on the same subject, has anyone ever heard about a way to
complement libraries, that is you have a library loaded in the system,
and than you add some more code to the library, dynamically (a
dynamically growing dynamic library....).
