there's an additional problem now that we have nested groups as well: config 
objects may not start at the root of the file. right now KConfigSkeleton 
assumes it owns the entire file and there is no way to make it start from a 
given sub-group that i can find since it takes a KSharedConfig::Ptr in the 
constructors ...

then there are methods like writeConfig(KConfig * config) ... shouldn't those 
take a KConfigBase* isntead? that would at least make it possible to extend 
to allow applying a KConfigSkeleton to a config object starting at a non-root 

as for the use case, i need this in plasma, for instance, where applets may 
provide a KConfigXT xml file for their settings but share a config file 
(using nested groups) with other applets.

i also noted that there are virtual methods that are inline in the header. 
shouldn't those go into the implementation?
