That's the key issue and the real solution. What we want for now is to
change internally to a context model not only because it solves our
particular windows dll problem without breaking the API, but because it
is an initial step to a more general solution that would allow things
like you say in the future.
As a side effect, it means a bit of work and it is a deep API change
from previous stable releases....
Currently we are focused on several projects depending directly on the
Vortex API . This makes the context-driven API change not viable at this
moment (plus the fact these projects won't take any advantage from this
