Can someone with a mac verify? I can ofcourse revert it, but would  
only like to do that if there is need and we can stick a fat comment  
there why we dont use G_MODULE_SUFFIX 8as this seems to be a logical  
thing to do).

To clarify, the issue you see is when running uninstalled, the plugins  
won't be picked up, as their extension is .so (only turned into .dylib  
when installing)?
