That is the whole point of the conversation. There are other places in KDE 
that use SSL outside of IO slaves, and right now they need to do their own 
certificate handling. So you have either duplicate code everywhere, or you 
have different libraries in use doing the same thing.

 - Kopete
 - Konversation
 - *Foo* networking app that wants to use SSL

So that code shouldn't be in TCPSlaveBase, but like you said, it needs ui so 
it shouldnt go into kdecore either. So no one knows where it goes.

There are two major products that came out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX.
