it's not. but you can really only run one desktop shell app at a time. so if
your widgets are tied to a given shell, they will be mutually exclusive to
another desktop shell.
fortunately, the way plasma is designed you can rather easily add other widget
systems to your plasma workspace. currently, besides 'native' plasma widgets
(written in c++, ecmascript or python .. with ruby nearly there) plasma also
support superkaramba and macos x dashboard widgets.
there's really no reason other formats could not be added as long as the
widget system is either scripted with easily drawn in dependencies or relies
on a toolkit that uses the glib event loop.
anyways.. this is all a bit OT for this list, isn't it? feel free to bring it
over to panel-devel at kde.org if you'd like to discuss further.
