This is easy as you said, let's start with this. If you have patches
just commit them and I'll review.

This is though, I think we need a handlers plugin system, and in general
I don't like loading all plugins if they are not going to be used.
Let's try with the simple approach that solves the contigent problem
first, but let's keep in mind in the end we should load only the plugins
we are going to use.

I think we should indeed decouple libldb and libpopt.
I think the easiest way is to put all options in the context with
get/set functions to access them and then let the apps handle how to
pass options.
