I don't agree. This is one of the purposes for libkdecore anyways: we
shouldn't standardise the C-level API and build C++ upon it. We should
standardise on C++ already.
As David said, DCOP is an abnormal case, because it sits below the
lowermost KDE library (libkdecore).

This sounds like glibc's sysdeps subdirs. But I didn't understand: why do
we carry mingw's headers inside KDE? Are they missing in mingw itself?
And if they are missing, are the function implementation in the libraries
(DLLs) present regardless of the mingw version?
