I'm sure someone has come up with a reason.

What does this do exactly? Is it an output method? CODEC? Input source?
All of the above? These are the questions I have. You may remember our
discussion about KXv for instance. I have still been working on this library
and it is getting into shape now. It will come to kdemultimedia with kwintv,
hopefully in 3.2. I can still make this a separate library, along with the
v4l code, and other high speed and not-so-high-speed video display methods.
I actually wrote a class which can attach to a QWidget and display video into
it using the best available method (configurable too). I think these kinds
of things would be useful in other KDE apps. Would they fit well in the
existing framework? Are they of use? I think the nice thing about them is
that they follow KDE development patterns, as opposed to arbitrary C based
