there is network related code in kdelibs in the form of the ftp and http 
ioslaves, kssl and a bunch of network related classes. they are there 
because, as i understand it, they are common and fundamental protocols needed 
for modern desktop applications.

i suppose the question is whether or not smtp, pop3 and imap are similar in 
that regard. for smtp, i plan on having kscd use libkcddb (currently in 
kdenonbeta) for 3.2 (closing most of the open bugs for kscd in the process =) 
and that will mean using kio_smtp ... so i'd consider sending mail via smtp 
to be a basic part of a modern desktop...
