Well, it is just a matter of opinion, but for me it is just nice to  
organize things like this. Qt4 has /Applications/Macports/Qt,  
similarly my various python installs have their own dub-dirs.  
Personally I would like to have all the KDE4 apps in their own sub- 
dir, rather than have them cluttering up the root /Applications/ 
Macports directory... Just my 2 pence worth.

BTW, is it possible for the KDE applications to have their proper  
icons ? At the moment they all get some default icon here. Not exactly  
high priority...
