This is to use AT-SPI 2 as client.
In other words: letting you write applications that act as assistive apps. In 
the case of KMag it uses the information that is provided to allow following 
the focus and cursor (assuming you type a text, you may have cursor movements 
in your editor without moving the mouse, so it's needed to follow the cursor).

Simon can use this library to introspect applications to learn about their UIs 
and provide actions for them.
