I am playing around with embedding Python scripts as extensions in
Konqueror :)

Checking symbol conflicts for all plugins does not seem to be possible
for stable branch, as there might be some external plugins (not in KDE
tree) which rely on current behaviour.
So I think I will stick to current 2-library approach and maybe we
should change it for KDE 4, giving explicit contract for plugins that
they must not have conflicting symbols?
