In this case Nepomuk::ResourceManager::instance()->init() might just return a 
failure. I did not mean that Nepomuk should be a hard dependency in the sense 
of "always turned on", just a hard dependency as library (it still is required 
that applications and widgets check whether Nepomuk is running).
