OK I see thats no good, so how about the 3rd approach? Each library needs to
detect if a Macro with a common format is defined and if it is do (one-time)
typeof registration. That would make that approach best from point of
simplicity. A global macro which triggers the per library macro could be
possible too for a user that is feeling lazy about figuring out which libraries
to register.
