Probably to avoid conversion mess like we have in some classes in KDE3.

Yes, but, as far as I see, the current constructors seems to drop the 
information whatever QDateTime is in local time or in UTC. So it is better 
not to have implicit conversions.

Of course, perhaps it would be nice to have a QDateTime to KDateTime 
contructor that use the state of QDateTime instead of trying to force the 
state. (That is something that I have missed.)

Have a nice day!
