thanks for clarifying this. that was my only question/concern. in a perfect 
world we could make these symbols *only* visible to kdelibs, but i have no 
idea if that's rationally possible.

i would suggest putting a note explaining this, however, in the apidox so that 
people know that these APIs are not to be consumed directly by applications, 
but by other libraries which provide abstractions which require access 
underneath to these platform sepcifics. that should make it clear for 

also, is it intended to install this header? judging from the '.h' prefix, i'm 
guessing, "yes"?
