I've seen this, but right now it's only at a rather low priority on my
list because I don't exactly fancy adding yet another fundamental
library to my list of custom-built things :/ (Parallel installation in
separate prefixes is possible and what I'm doing right now with stuff
like KTextEditor, but it tends to be fragile and annoying)

Lerne, wie die Welt wirklich ist,
aber vergiss niemals, wie sie sein sollte.
