Marble gets compiled as part of KDE-EDU as a KDE application (although one can 
also compile it as a Qt-Only application). 
But Marble is using a component (which basically makes up 95% of the 
application) that is only based on Qt libraries.

So what about that situation? Are people not allowed to use widgets/components 
in their KDE applications that are only based on Qt? Or is this just a 
misunderstanding on my side?
