Related to this, we currently have problems with the DOM Tree Viewer being 
unable to catch exceptions (and hence being crashy) due to getting separate 
RTTI info. Do you think it would be reasonable to have some way of marking 
KPart plugins to be opened as RTLD_GLOBAL? If so, any suggestions/pointers on 
how/where to put such stuff?
