Let's look at kkernel_win.h as the current member of kdecore - it's not 
installed. Just like kkernel_mac.h. Neither (at least for now) the new chunk 
of the now-private KDE::Windows API. I'd like to include it within the kdelibs 
source code tree, in a self-documenting way. So even someone knowing nothing 
about winapi (or mac internals, BTW) will notice what all these new #ifdef'd 
calls are about in kdelibs.

And yes, I am putting warnings in the apidox as usual in such cases.
