Yeah, I can trick them by updating the global variable I think, but with
'some changes' I meant more like 'half a rewrite' ;-)

I really need to rewrite the module interface, to get rid of these
global variables and to prepare for allowing out-of-process panel items.
I'm not sure yet if i should do that for 4.4 or if it has to wait for

Maybe we should try to come up with some sort of roadmap for 4.4, a list
of things that may reasonably be done in two months.
