Hmm I am not sure we can assume that.  What if the shell changes ID, for
example...  Also this way you are creating a possible hidden refcount

(Also I was idlily thinking that in the case where we are running
components separately the shell would register with different names
depending on what set of components it is running, so in that case that
wouldn't work.  I am not sure it's a good idea though...)
