I would like to see it there.

I believe so. There are also other apps that are useful for non-KDE

You can always make a separate release. Many applications do that, including 
Quanta, as we also support KDE 3.0. Personally I don't use cvs2dist, but I do 
it manually. It's not so hard. ;-) The only problem can be commits by other 
people which break compilation on KDE 3.0, so you must watch carefully the 
commit logs and try to compile it on KDE 3.0 from time-to-time.
