I just want to point it that this happens more often than one might
think.  I for one use things like konqueror, kcalc and khexdit while
my WM is fvwm2.  I know a bunch of people that use kde (and gnome for
that matter) applications but are not interested by the desktop

The current startup time of kde applications outside of the kde
desktop is a pain though, but heh.
