Frankly I don't care , but I like the idea of making it pure Qt (it 
would be more portable/popular I guess) and lose the background KDE 
processes that start with it . But mainly I wanted to start hacking on 
something , and in the same time I tried out about 7-8 music players for 
linux , so those two got combined .
