Cool...you should hop onto KOffice-devel mailing list which you can find
from kde.org. There is interest in having a generic KDE solution that
can be used like Greg's Clip Art Browser, which is a solo app, so that
scribus, karbon, etc, can get drag and drop of the Open Clip Art
It would be cool for you to consolidate into this solution so that all
users of KDE would get this benefit.
Also, the KOffice devs. have some ideas about different KDE constructs
to use, so please email them to see what they think.
You rule supremely!
