I'm not entirely sure that we want to distinguish between addins and
private.  Somewhat because it's additional code to write/test, but
mostly because I can't see this covering the log4net case, in which a
plugin/addin/etc. wants to make use of the application's copy of e.g.
log4net.dll (as presumably log4net won't be an addin any time soon).
