The situation is a bit complicated.

Marble, the application, can be compiled as a KDE application or as a qt-only 
application.  There are actually two different main window classes where one 
of them is chosen if it's built for KDE and the other when it's built for Qt.

However MarbleWidget, the widget that is used by Marble, the application, is a 
Qt-only widget. So we have to find some way to handle this.
