I think that is the direction.  There will be a common library, probably based 
on Oryanos and iccexamin, and a KDE specific front end.  That way someone 
could build a GTK front end for GNOME without too much difficulty.  The basic 
idea of the project is to get this working for one of the DE's so that the 
others could leverage it.  But we would also like to have a KDE mentor to 
make sure that what comes out of the project has a real chance of becoming 
part of KDE.
