First of all, I give (as you might have expected) full support for inclusion.

I have to agree. This is a situation that keeps occurring to me. We need some 
new policies for where to place libraries. Putting everything in kdesupport 
might end up in a dependency hell, but kdelibs is becoming more and more a 
beast. However, this discussion is probably not on topic.

I'd favour this lib to get into kdelibs since it will (hopefully) play a big 
role in the kde desktop, and since there is no guarantee that it will not use 
kdelibs in the future. With polkit-qt it was quite a different issue. In this 
case I think that qt-only apps might statically link to it, if needed.
