i don't believe it can use KConfig as it needs to be work from Qt only apps as 
well, which won't have the necessary KComponentData object that KConfig 
requires. perhaps it might work if it passed a self-made component data to 
KConfig? but still, probably nicer to just use QSettings in this case.

this is a question for the trolltech people. i'm at a conference where some of
