thanks.. seems way too many addon developers not knowing about this issue.
The addon-SDK had SDK/pannel which worked for my usecase (I had a desktop
version for testing) and may have covered many other scenarios.
There is also
and I would think this could be easilly made available to addons - perhaps
with a special permission and do the same trick safely. However the bugreport
to make it available was turned down for some reason that I never understood.
