I think a lot of applications will indirectly use it when KIO will be  
ported to the new lib.

KAuthorized is used for kiosks, right? I don't know if policykit fits  
well for this purpose. It should be researched.

Other widgets, no. But there are already one widget and a KAction  
subclass, provided by my kauth project, that are currently in that  
branch under kdeui.

Also, I've made modifications to KCModule class to support authorized  
kcmodules and those modifications simply can't be split in another lib  
without rewriting all the kcm support.

I'd propose to leave the UI part of the project in kdeui.

It has been in kdereview for three weeks before I started working on  
the kdelibs integration.
