           Summary: kst2 should become a kde app
           Product: kst
           Version: 2.0.1
          Platform: Compiled Sources
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kst at kde.org
        ReportedBy: netterfield at astro.utoronto.ca

Version:           2.0.1 (using KDE 4.5.0) 
OS:                Linux

Currently, kst2 uses only qt4 libraries, but could benefit from becoming a true
kde4 app.  The benefits are:
Support related:
  -release mechanisms
  -possibly icons

Library related:
  -kio to allow remote (small and static) data sources and remote kst files
  -dbus, if we go that way for scripting
  -knewstuff if we ever do scripting.
  -improved widgets

Linux/KDE desktop integration:
  -some theme settings not already integrated through qt.

To fix this we need to:
  update docs to kst2
  provide api docs for plugins and datasources
  pass krazy checker (eg, use kde widgets, etc).

The downside of going to KDE for kst is that many of the the improvements are
of little or no relevance under Windows or Mac.  If fact, it could be argued
that being KDE rather than pure QT could have downsides (like extra stuff
running and harder installation).  This needs to be resolved.

Please reference this bug in all discussions of this topic.
