Ok, I think I'm starting to get it...
But the LUA plugin is going to get dlopened anyway any time you add a
new script,  is that ok?

On a side note, I found out that my vlc is always dlopening it on
startup every time, even if I remove my uncachable patch...
Is there something wrong with my config? Because if it IS loaded
everytime anyway, there should be no problem...
