IMHO we wait for Simon's answer, the decision is more or less in his hands.
His (committed) plans and your plans conflict, so we must see whether he says:
- "we want Qt compat so Rafael's changes are a no-no", or
- "we want both Qt compat and multiple-plugins-in-a-plugin so I'll improve Qt", or
- "this use case shows that K_EXPORT_COMPONENT_FACTORY still has reasons
to live so we must find a way for KLibLoader to support both ways without runtime
warnings, for instance by changing KLibLoader so that when an explicit factory name
is passed we use the init_<factoryname> solution right away".

IMHO the best solution is the second one, which is why it's in Simon's hands :-)
