It's easier to get Qt onto mobile for example too. Remember, Qt developers are just KDE developers waiting to happen.

I'm not talking about porting plasma to Qt only, but specific classes like Plasma::Animator has a QGraphics* only api. That could be used in Qt only code if only there was a convenient place to get it from. Plasma::ExtenderItem is also mostly Qt only. That's from a 2 minute look at the library; I know little about plasma and QGV.
