  Mmm... ok, I think I talked too fast here :)

  Currently the priority is set also by the unique type identifier (#define
QR_AVATAR_QR_AVATAR 4) so last one is always higher priority by definition.

  Implementing priorities among avatar plugins requires some plugin interface
changes probably... will think about this, but not for this relase :)

  OK, didn't know size of QR changed with the size of the info. Sorry for the
noise ;)
