As the original author of KDialogBase, before someone took it and made a 
C-style janus widget out of it, i do not see the point in having those 2 

I also think that the different styles of dialog main widgets should not be in 
there.The whole DialogType thing does not make sense - there can be different 
dialog main widgets, but they do not have to be implemented in the dialog 
class. Those are simply two separate issues. 

Then we shall get rid of the default constructor that is a mile long. This is 
so 80s, it hurts. 

I guess this can be done before KDE4.
