Oh - I see. I wasn't expecting so much general functionality being
by kde libs. O.k., now I really understand.

Yes, now I see. Even more than changing the apps code, it would be a 
question of applying the no-dcopserver awareness to the kde libs, 
but this, instead of just not serving the request, would need alternate 
handlings, as the requests deal with so much basic functionallity.
But then again this would contamine the whole idea of wrapping these
basics to isolate them from the underlaying platform.

O.k., I am convinced now, that this is the wrong go.

Now I think about copying the dcopserver with all its shared
libs to the mini-system and try to start a dcopserver over there.
What would be missing then? Some config files? Some more servers?
Too much to even try it, or good chance for success?

(Installing kde is not possible, as there's not enough space.
May not even for the package infos ...
When I talk about "just copying", this actually goes to a nfs mount.)
