VS is offering this functionality through a function called DLLMain.
It is called when the DLL is loaded as well as when it's unloaded and
thus it can be used to take care of initialization as well as cleanup.
I did not yet use it since so far all my DLLs are just collections of
functions or classes without the need for cleanup and initialization.

This is also somehow implying that the library it not intended to be
build as a static library, right?
