If GeoClue uses GDBus and GSettings is already available, there's no point in
asking them not to on the grounds of dependency. The reason would be that KDE
wouldn't be able to affect those settings, so a simple config file is better.
Qt bindings to access GSettings are new and untested, they require a patched
Qt or Qt 4.8 (which isn't released). Maybe one day they'll be acceptable, but
right now they aren't and KDE has not decided to switch to it anyway.
