For some of us, it's impractical for KDE to depend on glib at all.  Putting 
glib in kdesupport makes it less difficult for some of us, should you add 
that dependency.

For some of us, your aims to make an inconsistent, least-common-denominator 
amalgam of GNOME and KDE are not valid reasons to add a new dependency to 
KDE 3.2.
