On the other hand, I need to reference ipalib.api from the code that would be 
running from both within the framework's plugin and outside it -- 
ipaserver/dcerpc.py has a number of objects and functions which need this.
Removing ability to use ipalib.api singleton would mean I need to create 
wrappers to pass its instance in.
