A Krita image library would certainly be ideal for KolourPaint.  I am sick of 
working around the bugs and esp. the limitations of the current Qt backend.

One thing I keep forgetting to bring up: You need to double check the licenses 
of some of the files you intend to put in your core image library.  From 
memory, some of them are either GPL or QPL, not LGPL.  This is bad for closed 
source apps and also BSD licensed programs such as KolourPaint.  One piece of 
code that comes to mind was either the tablet or smooth painting patch which 
was derived from QPL code but there was more.
