MyBB, dl(), and PHP 5.3.x - no dl() in many 5.3.x releases

While working on a plugin recently I was getting white pages which I traced back to dl() trying to load the mysqli extension on line 126 of init.php from 1.4.11.
Upon a little research on php.net I found the following:
"This function has been removed from some SAPI's in PHP 5.3."
Yay. So 5.3.x releases might have dl() removed? How stupid. All because of the flame.so exploit. Screw a pooch.
I guess MyBB needs to check if dl() is available and working and if not load a custom dl() function?
For now since I full control over my local server I've gone in and set enable_dl to On in my php.ini... but I've read that some hosts are turning dl() off because of the exploit I mentioned above.
