Oh, here's the answer to one question; you add a hard dependency on another

Ok, here's the full-updated-plugin-patch (~1 hour snapshot). It uses g_module* for loading libxslt. I cannot

There are some things the patch changes at a more global level:
        add a DIA_PLUGIN_PATH envvar.
        check for libxslt upon configure: What to do I the lib is not found ? (I'm no auto* guru)
