Hmm, maybe we should distinguish here C and C++...
QString and QObject are fine in C++, but when you want to develop plain
C in a comfortable way, you need something like GLib. And yes, there are
C applications in KDE (e.g. ksysguardd) which could profit from using a
well tested library instead of using home brewed solutions.
