	I should stop working in Plasma NM then since for distributions that 
ships Gnome as default desktop nm-applet is the standard.

	If colord has a small dependency set and Dantii created the kcm is a 
couple of weeks, why not add support to colord in kolor-manager and add 
oyranos to kdegraphics. You already talked about that to Kai-Uwe and he ageed 
with that.
	I usually in favor of the most versatile project, that is why I started 
to use KDE in the first place. Oyranos seems more versatile than colord, 
although I am also not an expert in color management.

	Krita too as says the other guy in the list. We do not know who is using 
oyranos, if oyranos is importnat to big part of KDE users then I am in favor 
of adding it to kdegraphics and since there is willingness to add support to 
colord in kolor-manager then why not?
