KDE needs a desktop calculator, and SpeedCrunch is not a desktop calculator. 
The behavior is completely different. There are also some UI problems with it 
(non-techies don't know that '*' means multiplication, the sqrt icon doesn't 
work with dark schemes, most common functions have to selected from a list, 
etc.). It's also Qt generic, and would take some work to KDEify it.
