It think you should aim for a BC, "change-the-application-to-use-it" solution 
:-) E.g. if you were to make a KImageFileDialog, KPaint would have to be 
changed to make use of that. The actual KImageFileDialog class could then 
take care of the saving and since it would be closesly tied to KImageIO it 
could do all kind of dirty tricks to pass information to the plugins.
