Oh, ok. Misunderstanding. I've not claimed that the code is supposed to stay 
that way forever. :) The problem is that we currently have about 23 places in 
KDE (according to lxr), that call KLibrary::findLibrary (which maps a lib to 
an absolute path) without actually loading it. I could certainly use the 
qlibrary code in your test.cpp to implement the searching, however I fear 
that it is a little bit slow to dlopen it just for fun. I was planning to get 
rid of those 23 places to be able to remove the findLibrary API ,then we can 
simplify the stuff a lot and benefit from the behaviour in QLibrary you 
pointed out.
