Well, that would be the idea of putting it in kdeextragear -- the library will 
formally be released separately, but in practical terms it would be released 
to sync up with the KDE 3.2 release.

Yes, I agree -- specifically we're starting to see a lot of projects that are 
in a similar category:  non-kde specific, but targeted towards KDE.

aRts, unsermake, mpeglib, kjs, etc. come to mind...
