I should have been more clear I guess. When I wrote kjob there I meant a 
library for asynchronous job execution containing kjob, kcompositejob and 
perhaps the rest of the contents of kdecore/jobs

KLocale, KConfig, KStandardDirs, KMimeType and it's associated runtime 
services etc etc are also in kdecore. Why should a Qt application wanting to 
use kjob have to take all that stuff as well? I'm not sure if you read the 
wiki page or the linked mailing list thread in it? You seem to be 
challenging the idea that less internal dependencies in kdelibs is a good 
thing, but I think that's for a separate thread anyway.
