That is true for most libraries.

In fact, if you want to do that, you need to get an explicit assurance from 
the library that it is supported. Qt offers no assurance, so don't assume that 
it works.

I've wanted for some time to add a function that initialises the subsystems 
that can survive a fork-but-no-exec, like loading all of the plugins. I've 
never got around to to doing it.
