KCModules are used for application configuration dialogs as well. Applications 
that want to incorporate modules from plugins can make use of KCModules 
through KCMultiDialog or even more convenient using KSettings::Dialog (KView 
used it, Kontact and Kopete use it, Konqueror should use it (AFAIK it still 
uses kcmshell) and other applications extensively making use of component 
technologies could make use of it).

The KCModule concept is a lot more usefull than only for KControl.
