Now *that's* a topic I'd probably take offline since I think it's of
less general interest.

What's the big deal? You copy the library into the user's Externals
folder, restart the IDE, and you're set to go. However, the v4rev.dll
library placed there by the valentina installer (I'm not at my linux
computer right now, so I can't verify the library name there) doesn't
show up in the externalpackages, leading me to asssume it's compiled
wrong. Hard to believe this is ever gonna work.

While I'm on the subject, the externalfunctions of stack "home" shows
two (!) copies each of revdb_valentina(), revdb_valentinacursorref(),
revdb_valentinadbref(), and revdb_valentinadbreftoconnection(), even
without the valentina driver installed.
