> @Albert: How to solve this dilemma?

The proper solution would probably be splitting the thing into 3 .pot files, 
one for core/ that gets loaded with a KCatalogLoader, one for smb4k that gets 
loaded by the regular KAboutData/KComponentData way and another for the 
plasmoid that gets loaded the plasmoid way.

The easy solution is just adding a KCatalogLoader of smb4k catalog somewhere 
in core/

Thanks for the directions, Burkhard and Albert. I will split the current catalogue into three *.pot files as suggested by Albert.
