Probably because nobody thought it'd be useful outside the kdevplatformvcs 
library until now.

Looking briefly at the code, I don't see anything that prevents it from being 
exported. It just needs to be pimpl'd and probably renamed to something more 
specific (e.g. DvcsImportMetadataWidget) -- then you can export it. Patches 

Anyway, what plugin are you working on and what's the use-case for re-using
