Ah, sorry, mentioning Konqueror and Dolphin - and the whole app being 
Qt-based - made me think you were going to write primarily KDE-targeted 
an app (so the deps wouldn't be a problem).
It would be a cool thing to be able to use KParts should one want to/like 
to. Anyway, just an idea for version 1.x. ;)

Great! If there will be a possibility to "package" the widgets as KParts, 
it would contribute a lot to the overall KDE flexibility (one could use 
your editor widget as an alternative KPart in Konqueror or KWrite, and 
the "stats://" widget in Konqueror and Dolphin).

Had I only the time, I would brobably dive into KParting those widgets 
myself... eh.
