Qt4addons module?

I've been working (a little) on the port of the EXR image plugin from Qt3/KDE3 
to Qt4. As I understand it, Qt4 QImageIOPlugin classes don't really have any 
KDE dependencies (or at least, could avoid having such dependencies pretty 
easily). If we installed them to $QTDIR/plugins/imagehandler/, then they 
would work for any Qt application.

That leads me to wonder if it might we be better off abstracting those parts 
of kdelibs that are really Qt addons/plugins out of kdelibs, so that they 
could be used independently of KDE4. The downside is that it would end up 
being another dependency. The upside is that it might attract non-KDE 
developers - acting as a focal point for Qt community support, and getting 
more codecs/image handlers/whatever for KDE.
