No it doesn't. Each component just knows the 'KDevApi' which is
a set of interfaces (which is at the same time a set of DCOP
interfaces) that are needed to process the bread & butter tasks
an IDE must perform. There are a number of parts that bring
the user to a certain location in a certain file. This is
something that must be centralized in exactly _one_ part,
not less than one, not more than one. It's the same for other
interfaces: For compiled languages, you need one component
that starts the compiler and displays its output.
