[maemo-developers] [maemo-developers] Problem with Home plugin

I wonder if the Home is already using GTypePlugin interface and dynamic 
types to handle the types registered by the plugins. That would be the 
right (tm) way to handle this in the scope of GObject... In the case of 
register_static one can newer unload the modules.
