Too cheap to be on it's own IMO. Someone who really wants to do plotting 
wouldn't be using it, they'd use a KDChart or Qwt.

'At least two competitors' = KDChart and QwtPlot?

Those are far more complete than the kplotting widget. They're really not 
comparable at all in terms of complexity or use-cases. 

kplotting also doesn't depend on either of the above plotting engines, let 
alone both of them, so I guess I didn't understand what you wrote here or 
why having kplotwidget grouped with other widgets would mean dragging them

Are you sure? These are not 'de-duplication' tasks.
