loadView is private and only called from load().

Unsure if that will work. Also, this is quite a messy bit ping-pong going on
(roughly, IIRC):
- libsw calling into libfwk
- libfwk calling async into libbiblio via the servicename from the config
- libiblio calling into libfrm
- libfrm calling into libdba
(all via UNO)

One could try to catch it even earlier, but it is buried in the abstraction
onion of framework and its config files. I would not be sure to find all
entries to the implementation there.

OTOH, let me just reply with a sentence I heard you say quite often: "Patches
welcome!" ;)
