That's because that's the prefered way. If you look at the built-in
engines, though, you will see that they have code for non-dynamic
situations. In that case, the engine needs to define a loading
function (ENGINE_load_foo()) which needs to be called instead of doing
whatever you do to load the engine dynamically.
I haven't done this for a few years, so I'm a bit rusty myself...
