Low-level network classes library

I have discussed with our friends the Trolls about having unified network 
classes between Qt and KDE. People have asked me about this and that would 
also solve the problems about the use of Qt classes in KDE applications.

So I'll be coordinating with TT developers to develop these classes. We're 
going to use the code I've already created as a kick off. The idea is to have 
that ready for Qt4, which would also solve their wishes for their own network 
classes. KDE would then use those classes and extend upon them, implementing 
our functionality (proxies, for example).

Anyways, since this code will be developed outside Qt and will be used by KDE, 
we have a "man in the middle" situation: libkdecore will probably have to 
link against a new library, which I have tentatively called libqt-addon.

So I have to ask: how and where would be best to implement that? I believe the 
KDE repository would be the most suitable place, given that we'll sooner or 
later require that library. However, I'm reluctant to propose the 
resurrection yet again of the kdesupport package...
