If unloading glib together with gtk is acceptable you can replace the
g_atexit function so you keep your own list and call it just before
See (and copy/paste) this great code:
Of course this works only on *NIX (ELF executables) where symbols are
global and you can replace them with those already in memory.
Having a way to unwind all functions registered by the normal g_atexit
would be nice.
