Hmm, can really just the word "google" be considered a TM? Is there any kde-
legal team (or just anyone who know how this works) that could shed a bit of a 
light on this?

The loooongterm plan is to add support for other APIs, not just the PIM stuff 
(that's why I didn't want to integrate the lib to kdepimlibs). 

The most imminent plans are for support of Reader, GDrive and Latitude APIs.

Ee :) The resources are already in kdepim-runtime, this is just a library to 
interface with G's API.
