Sounds like you would have to replace every reference to the global context
with a function call that returns the context used to create the instance in
question. And you'd have to plugin some syntax to the connect call to say "use
a new context" or "use this specific" context.
Sounds way ugly to me.
Since I opened Pandora's box on this one, let me do the leg-work on determining
how much work this might entail.
