Ah -- I've found an article on the subject: Not that can 
say I understand the implications. I feel rather strongly that tearing apart 
class data and class methods make code uglier. The advantages the article 
argues are not about reducing compilation time, though, but data sharing. 
This is interesting, but how does this relate to our use of KSharedPtr?
