i had a short glimpse at the barcodegenerator CMakeList file but i
didn't find any explicit dependency...

how does it make sure that the barcode is compiled after the fileloader?

well, if the dependence is explicit, i don't really see the problem...
personally, i'd like to see more non core functionalities implemented
in plugins... and if we do that we probably cannot avoid some

i'll be looking further into it this evening...

thanks for your hints
