Static plugins and enable final

Hello people,

I'm writing this in regard to 220403. To put it short, KAuth (in kdecore) is 
based upon static plugins, which are not built if KDE4_ENABLE_FINAL is turned 
on, resulting in quite bad situations.

Now, I can write a patch to ditch out static plugins, but that would require 
hardcoding some stuff and doing not-so-good things. Bearable, but I'd like to 
avoid this.

The second option is activating KDE4_NO_ENABLE_FINAL on kdecore, which I 
suppose is something that is not even taken into consideration. I'd like to 
know if there's a third way out of this, and if not, at least to put write 
that using static plugins is discouraged (at least when dealing with a big kde 
library like kdecore, since solid happily uses them).
