Yes, this is the right way, since it matches what kded itself does.

     const KService::List kdedModules = KServiceTypeTrader::self()->query("KDEDModule");
     for(KService::List::ConstIterator it = kdedModules.begin(); it != kdedModules.end(); ++it)
         KService::Ptr service = *it;

and yes, it skips Hidden=true files, since they are not in ksycoca at all.
