Thanks for this!

I'm wondering about the situation of UIs being created before their 
toolkits had been initiated.
At least in Qt, creating a widget before an application instance causes 
a crash.
So if the UI implements this, it needs to make sure the toolkit it uses 
is properly setup first.

Can you add this info to the interface docs?
