Yes, that makes sense to me. But in case I didn't say so yet: The
Kalzium-3D-stuff is pure Qt. Not a single KDE-class is used. We just
start it from a KDE-application (Kalzium), thats it. In other words: I
minimum-Qt-app (just a QApplication) which starts our viewer works. No
KDE involved :)

To quote Benoît:

Eigen is ANSI-c++ which means that it can be used in OpenBabel. No
Q-classes involved.

Btw: We could move this to kalzium at kde.org (in CC) so that it is
archived and we don't need to CC like mad :-). OpenBabel-list is also
fine for me, of course.
