That isn't quite what I meant.

I wasn't thinking about a single library that has only a Qt dependency (which 
would probably end up being kdecore, all over again). I was thinking more 
about a single module containing several stand-alone parts, which are already 
compiled to separate .so (as plugins), and which could potentially be useful 
independent of KDE, and independent of each other.

I'm thinking more about things like database handlers, image formats, codecs, 
rather than about another general support library.
