what would the signal be for?

i don't think the signals are necessary, but the rest if good, yes.

this probably doesn't belong with the plasma-desktop dbus stuff (as that would
incur a runtime dependency on plasma-desktop for apps, so isn't overly
useful), but running dataengines OOP as a general thing would be an
interesting project indeed. one would hope it would make the UI a little
snappier in some cases, though it certainly would mean more CPU usage and
memory usage due to having two processes and some IPC traffic.
