Just thinking out loud:

Could this be done by having a registry for this? That is when a plugin is
being loaded it registers all its type and each one gets an id (possibly
read from a special place in the duchain repository if it was seen before).
This is the stored during the runtime in an easily accessible variable that
doesn't need a function call to fetch (could just make it a protected
member variable in the base class of all duchain items). 


A visit to a fresh place will bring strange work.
