IIRC kdesktop uses libkonq only because of the icon view class in libkonq. 
However, the libkonq icon view is designed around *rectangular* windows, 
which doesn't necessarily apply to KDesktop (think Xinerama). In the work 
branch where I was messing with Xinerama I was working on dropping libkonq, 
since it's just not going to work.

As of September 1st, 2004, the University of Nijmegen will _still_ be the 
University of Nijmegen, but with a different nonsensical adjective in front.
