since I didn't get much response on kde-devel, I ask here:

I wrote a small kinfocenter module, which shows some information about all 
connected firewire devices. 
You can get the sources from
It uses libraw1394, so it is linux-only. It consists of only approx. 250 lines 
of code, so that I don't think abstracting anything to make it portable to 
other platforms makes sense.

Is there a place for it in cvs ?
kdebase, kdeaddons, the extragear ?

Are the any issues with using the word "firewire" ? Should I change it to 
"IEEE1394" ?
