"Matthias Ettrich is proposing a new strategy for more
strongly integrating Qt-only applications into KDE. It's an
intriguing proposal and relevant to KDE, considering the growing
number of cross-platform but Qt-only applications becoming
available. The initial "not-perfect but simple" basic idea is that
a small libQtKDE proxy library would invoke KDE functionality when
available, or otherwise fall back to Qt functionality. This would
not involve changing Qt or KDE, but would require the programmer to
link against the libQtKDE wrapper. The benefits for the former
Qt-only developer is that KDE functionality would be made available
cheaply without giving up the Qt-only cross-platform approach. The
benefits for the KDE user is that what would have otherwise been a
pure Qt-only application could now potentially integrate much more
strongly with KDE."
