This case is very strange and I would advice you the same that Lluis has
noted. BTW: perhaps we should make for this feature a special
information message that warned the user about the fact that the linked
source is not commonly the most elegant solution, and telling him to use
a shared class library unless he knows what he is doing.

Just wondering... Wouldn't the "overlay icons" (instead of normal icons)
be a better solution for this?
