I thought it might be possible to in general leave a library
"agnostic" as to whether it gets compiled serverless or serverful.
Maybe we could make the use of the "proxied" flag on <library>
optional, so that the compiler will check it's value if it is
supplied, and warn or error if it disagrees with the main app's canvas
The way the current implementation I've got is working with respect to
the "proxied" flag is that so far all the behavior is only
conditionalized at runtime. The compiler doesn't do anything except
set the values of the "proxied" attributes which are specified in the
I think this works for data and library loading operations, the only
question is whether we are going to need to do anything at
compile-time for media requests. I *think* all the conditionalization
for media requests can also be done at runtime.
