Sorry for repeating what I already wrote above:

Why should we want an embedded viewer for images in KMail? If we show 
images inline then they are simple <img> tags in the HTML code we 
create for displaying the message in the KHTMLPart. So no embedded 
viewer is needed for this. And if the user wants to view the picture 
then why should we use an embedded viewer instead of a fast standalone 
viewer. In fact I'd very much prefer to use an external standalone 
viewer instead of an embedded viewer because it means less code.
