Maybe a better wording would have been, "the email isn't
self-contained; it points to the useful thing." :-)

Hm, I don't think so. Sounds like a good enhancement request you can
file at http://code.google.com/p/rietveld

Someone explained this to me in IRC. I guess the reason that Windows
and Keychain providers are statically linked is because those APIs are
*guaranteed* to exist when building on Windows or OS X. But Gnome and
KDE libs may not exist, so it makes sense to load them dynamically,
only if they exist at run-time.
