KDE3 applications using native DCOP would not be able to access non-KDE4
D-BUS applications. Let me explain:
KDE4 applications using our D-BUS implementatino would register DCOP alias
names inside the D-BUS namespace "org.kde.dcop.appname.objname".
Therefore, if a DCOP call is received on our KDE4 dcopserver, it can be
routed to the KDE4 application using D-BUS.
However, those KDE3 applications using DCOP would not be able to call
"obj.freedesktop.screensaver", since there would be no DCOP alias for them.
I don't believe this to be a problem since KDE3 applications cannot call
that *now*. Since their view of the world is already restricted *now*, we
wouldn't do any harm by *not* enhancing that view.
