They can already - I added setInteractive(false), all that's needed it maybe a few
if()s more if some dialog box remains somewhere.

I use jobs in kio_trash which is obviously non-gui.

And then libkdeui would depend on kio? This needs major kio changes to get rid
of the kdeui dependency... Why not, but if the goal is to avoid QtGui, your first
concern is kdecore, which has QtGui stuff too...
