Can services be installed being non-administrator on win*? If not, deployment 
of KDE applications will be severely hindered.

Consider the simple use case of a corporate web developer who badly wants to 
use Quanta because Fontgape doesn't cut it. He isn't local admin, because he 
doesn't need it for his kind of work.

Now if installing Quanta/win* (and its dependence chain) required admin 
permissions at some point, less grassroots deployment of KDE software will 
take place, making it less known to the win*-user base.
