Is the IID from the QPluginLoader's meta data part of the public API? i.e.
can I rely on it being there (assuming a valid plugin) and use it in my


It's not documented as either "private don't use this" or available
directly from the plugin loader through the C++ API, but I can get it
through metaData().

I want a unique ID for a plugin and thought this would be a good candidate
rather than adding my own. Good idea? Bad idea?
