Not, it is actually a KImageIO plugin. This plugin won't work at all 
*only* with Qt, because it uses the KImageIO registering method 
(defining C functions with a concrete naming scheme). Anyway, I think 
that it would work well either packaged in kdelibs or kdegraphics, as it 
is an standalone .so
The code also provides a KFile plugin, that has nothing to do with Qt.
