AFAIK there's no protable way to do that and it's not only the
constructors, non-virtual and static functions are also called directly.
So I guess the only way is to write a wrapper library with a C interface.

And I don't think this makes sense on *IX. On a non-networked single-user
OS like windows that's OK. But on UNIX it doesn't mean I want to use those
libraries just because they're installed. When logged in over SSH the
popup window will be on the wrong machine maybe miles away. It must be
possible to disable this feature.

Just my 2 cents.
