One thing I forgot to mention - the first PyKDE app loaded (application or 
applet) loads 20+ MB of libs. The second and later PyKDE apps/applets will 
use the same shared libs, so the overhead for the second and later apps is 
quite small.

Also, kicker doesn't unload applet libs, even when applets are destroyed, so 
if you open a single applet and then close it, the 20+ MB of libs remain in 
memory until kicker is restarted (which can be done via DCOP). 

PyKDE-based applets will work correctly under session management too, but when 
kicker restarts them in a new session, it appears to apply the current style 
settings, so things like background color can change from what you originally 
programmed. There are probably ways around that, but I haven't looked into it 
too much yet.
