Hah... I hadn't thought about that one. Good idea, that'll give me a purpose in life! :)

I did find a workaround, thanks to writing up a succinct outline for my previous message. The idea is simple: if KF5KIOWidgets is unloaded because no longer needed because the plugin is unloaded, prevent that unloading from happening.


@Thiago: I thought plugins were not being unloaded anymore on exit, since QT 5.6 or so. Why does that not apply to platform theme plugins, or has the principle been reversed?
