Yes, the question is only which API to provide. I'm thinking about something 
1) void IPlugin::setUpGui(KParts::MainWindow *w)
where plugin would create guiclient, fill its action collection and use

2) KXMLGUIClient *IPlugin::createGuiClient()
where plugin would just create guiclient and return it and shell would use 
this function on demand.

What I don't know is how to state the function contract (in the code) - that 
XMLGUIClient has to be created each time we ask plugin about it. Second 
function states the contract in the name so I like it better.
