it's not "can i write the code" it's "when do i use DBUS vs DCOP". it's one 
more thing one has to learn, one more decision one has to make. and in this 
case it would be a highly arbitrary one ("dcop when talking to another KDE 
application or service, dbus when talking to the system or another non-KDE 
service; unless it's a KDE app providing a cross-desktop service, in which 
case use DBUS too... <append other twists as they arise>") 

our developer framework should be as simple as possible so as to attract and 
keep developers. we shouldn't be aiming to recreate the mess seen on other 
platforms. =)
