libgoya - possibly in kdelibs ?

Hi all,

I really know we should focus on 4.0.x and stability before smoking crack for 
4.1. Anyway I have been doing some work for the Goya infraestructure, which 
is right now at playground/libs. It is kde-independant, and despite the 
kDebug() lines only depends on Qt.

Since I'm quite new for this kind of things on the project, I would like to 
know some things:

- Could it be possible to move the library from playground to 
kdelibs/kdeui/itemviews ?

You may be wondering why. Here is my explanation:

Goya is a framework for inserting controls into itemviews in a really easy and 
fast way. It now supports pushbuttons, comboboxes and only renders (not 
editable) line edits. Of course I will add without effort radio buttons and 
check boxes. This framework makes hell easy for the delegate to draw and make 
it easy to interact with those controls that Goya added (you can check out 
the tests at playground/libs/goya/tests). You just can use signals/slots for 

Now that I said the reason of its existence, I can say where it could be 
needed: for sure KPluginSelector (kdelibs/kutils) and kuiserver 

So, what do you think ? If we don't want it into kdelibs, we would need to 
make kdelibs depend in some kind of "goya library", that distributions should 
start to deploy (maybe on the meanwhile on kdesupport, if that makes sense). 
If we want it on kdelibs, could that be made for 4.1 ? The code is pretty 
tested and I think it works quite fine.

Bye and thanks, 
Rafael Fernández López
