Dealing with Libraries and DLLs

I have a few globally defined libraries that come with native DLLs. I
haven't found a convenient way to use them with IDEA so far.

Ideally, I'd like to be able to "Attach native library..." to my global
library definition the same way I attach a jar or sources. When I include
the library as part of a module, I'd like to have the module's
java.library.path extended with the path to the DLLs.

Is there already a way to handle this problem that I haven't seen? Or is it
worth a Jira feature request?

Thanks,

Vince.

This would definitely be cool. I would vote for the request.
