Hi all,
yesterday i was toying with porting the javascript interactive console for 
one thing that i stumbled upon is how much dependencies the thing has.

apart the usual removal of kde4support, it depends from new things like 
ktexteditor,ktextbrowser etc.

so, it would bump up the dependencies of the plasma-framework repo even more 
and i don't really like it.
so, there could be alternatives:

* rewrite it with less dependencies (tough it need kate as the editor to not 
* split the shell out of the repo
* move the console in another process, but there may be too much that would 
have to be exposed trough dbus for that

opinion, comments?
