I'll add a GError ** to query/load/unload.  I thought I had these in there,
I guess not, sorry about that.  I've added an issue on bitbucket for this

Also, I think it was Eion that was asking about versions in dependencies,
it's been on my radar for an while (see my issue tracker).  I just haven't
gotten to it yet.  If anyone wants to beat me to it feel free to send me a
pull request ;)
