 > Ok, I'm getting it.
 > One more question, however : how can it find out the shared object from
 the address ? I had a look at the be book but couldn't find anything (I
 think it's in Kernel/Image, but...). Do I need to use get_image_info and
 look for the address ranges, until I find the one that matches the pointer
 ? Isn't there any "reverse lookup" for this ?

 No, ATM iterating through the images via get_next_image_info() is the only
 way. Maybe we should introduce a
 {{{
 status_t get_image_info_for_address(team_id team, addr_t address,
 image_info* info);
 }}}
 to make this more efficient.

 > Also, is there a reliable way to derive a mimetype from this info ? For
 an application I know only of be_app->GetAppInfo ; I have no idea what I
 can do for add-ons and libraries.

 Once you have the library/add-on path you can use
 BAppFileInfo::GetSignature().

 > Is there even a mimetype set on libraries at all ?

 Usually not, but that could made a requirement, if a library wishes to use
 the locale kit.
