Just because Dolphin is being rewritten using itemviews-ng and
QGraphics* doesn't mean that it's heading towards the QML area. As
others have mentioned, full-blown applications like this do not make
sense, but lighter ones do (like the phonon thingy). Especially given
all that Dolphin has to manage (as mentioned, treeviews, column views,
preview display & generation, nepomuk data, tooltips filled with that
data)..etc. and dragging. Full dragging support doesn't exist nicely
out of the box with QML, which is a huge oversight imho.

QML is great for certain uses with applications that do not have
sophisticated requirements. For those that do, lets not try to cram
QML down everyone's throat just because it ends world hunger, just
apply it where it fits the niche nicely ;-p
