To reduce JuK dependencies on KDE frameworks?

Hi , I'm not really a KDE user , but I found out that JuK is pretty much 
the best player out there for the linux desktop  (at least for my needs 
- it's awesome that the playlists are kept intact and not imported in 
some imaginary app-specific .xml) .
  So , on-topic : when I installed JuK with all deps it was ~200MB . 
Also I believe the KDE runtime services are required . So the question 
is - are there that many bindings to the KDE frameworks (that can't be 
easily replaced by pure Qt) ? I'm willing to start a Qt port , if the 
anwser is no , and there's a general consensus that it would be 
beneficial for the project (I'm pretty sure it will be) .

A side question (just out of curiosity ,I'm not really able to implement 
such stuff yet) - has someone thought about plugin support?
