... which, obviously, lives in kdepimlibs which apparently (why
exactly?) is not an option for KHTML. My question is "Why do you think
this would require a hard dependency on kdepimlibs?"

dependencies. Simply add a suitable interface, provide a suitable
fallback implementation which does a basic check and use the fully
featured implementation if kdepimlibs is installed.
