  The point is that the code in TCPSlaveBase is specific to TCPSlaveBase.  If 
you want it in Kopete or Konversation, you should adapt that code as 
required.  It could then be packaged into a class or function or whatever is 
most suitable and placed into libkssl for general use.  This is the typical 
way all such code finds its way into kdelibs.
