Well, basically the things Thiago mentioned earlier:

* anything that needs to run another process than my application (kded, 
kglobalacceld, klauncher, knotify, dbus...)
* anything that wants to finds installed stuff in some pre-ordained path or 
file system structure.
* and for this particular issue, anything that adds size on disk or in memory 
for something I am not using.

As Thiago says, the problem is the expected runtime environment :-(.

I love KDE, and I miss it sorely when I have to use something else, whether 
that's my phone, my mac or my windows vm -- but if I want to make my app 
available on those platforms, KDE is a liability.
