Well, you don't need KDE apps to communicate through DBUS for that. You only
need the dcopserver to listen to the DBUS channel - from what I understood.

Of course the Qt bridge gets in your way and as Waldo pointed out, that will make
it confusing to the developer/user - so I would advertise going to DBUS too.
