A private function that is to be used only by your private application is 
actually very unlikely to get added to the KDE libraries.

However if you need this private function for a more general-purpose reason 
then it's certainly possible that it could benefit more applications than just 
your own. So perhaps you could tell us what function it is you intend to add, 
and why it is required to be in the KDE libraries and can't be done from 
within your application.
