You don't need to add the classes to kalyptus/kalyptusDataDict.pm, but other 
than that what you did should have worked. Is KCanvas in a namespace, is that 
the problem?

It's certainly important to be able to wrap all the kde apis, but the Smoke 
library needs to be made more modular to be able to do that. So it might not 
be possible until we have a new version of Smoke for KDE 4.
