Ok, fine with me. I just thought there was a reason why the C++ parser
is a shared lib, like making it usable for other apps, without needing
to copy it.

That also means means basically we don't need the extra shared libs in
the C++ part, so we could build 1 plugin instead of 1 plugin that
depends on 4 different libs (or is it just 3?)

David: Do you mind if I do that change this weekend - would mean having 1
CMakeLists.txt in the cpp folder, not sure yet how to do the tests then,
either separate files or also in the main 1. If you think this might
disturb you too much in your SoC I can postpone it after that. (CC'ing
you as you said you don't get any list-mails)


Your step will soil many countries.
