It was merely to illustrate a point, that switching to QML is not a simple
process, and it seemingly takes us over a year (at the very least, since we
still aren't close) to reach feature parity with the old solution.

Therefore I think it's useless to move existing, nicely working applications
(like kcalc) to it for seemingly no good reason at all.

Yes, I've been playing with the desktop components in Qt 5.2. Hopefully they
will get a lot better before we release anything using them, though, because
things like the file/folder selector is basically unusable in the current
state, at least on the systems I've tested it on.
