No, that was at compile time. I meant modifying ranks via some API when library
is loaded.

Hm, that sounds a bit against the spirit of the architecture and also doesn't
it mean lowering priorities would be exactly the same?

Not a huge issue, I just prefer having to carry fewer packages which need
patching and rebuilding. But never mind that, I already rebuilt ugly plugins
and are testing with that.
