Because we no longer install the headers which make it
possible to do so.  Ok.. technically you could copy the headers
to your project dir and hack a solution.  Even still, this makes
kdeutils dependent on kdepim (because the jots  plugin will
require the kontact interface library).

The kontact interface library API is not stable so we can't
move it to kdepimlibs, unfortunately.

This isn't a huge deal.  I almost would be happier without
a kjots plugin, but others seem to want such a thing.
