then what is the alternative?  kstartupinfo doesn't work with anything
but Qt/X11 right now, and in the mac (and presumably windows) port
there is a lot of broken and hackishly #ifdef'd stuff everywhere that
kstartupinfo is used.

It doesn't seem like there's any reason for kstartupinfo to be tied to
X11, other than it's current specific implementation.  Why not make it
work everywhere kdelibs is supposed to be supported?
