If people want to copy those classes into their programs and use them, 
they are free to do so. The license is LGPL (or less) for a reason.

If we mount a library of "Qt-only useful classes", I think we'll end up 
with libkdecore, just like David said. I didn't count, but I would bet 
that the number of classes that don't compile/link/work on Windows is a 
small minority when compared to the whole.

On my side, I know that the socket classes don't work on Windows (and, 
what's even more problematic, there are no Unix sockets on Windows). The 
reason for that is that I don't know the winsock API and have no 
intention of learning.
