Maybe we could solve this by making it possible to have binary  
plugins for the UI modules. We already have that capacity (though  
widely unused) for file plugins. Speaking of which, I am wondering if  
there is a third-party GPL library that provides some kind of  
abstraction to dlopen()-style dynamic loaders ? It would be easier  
than writing our own from scratch.
