I'd go tell them about glib and dbus. Since glib is heavily used by
GStreamer and GStreamer is going to become a core component on nearly
all KDE4 deployments, right?

I don't foresee a lot problems telling the gnome hackers about C++
(gtkmm). And in stead of KIO I'd tell them about DVFS.

I never said it can't be. I said it shouldn't matter for our users. Try
reading what I write, not your fantasy.

No. That's just "you" trying to tell people my goal is about "some kind
of war and seeking world dominance". I fail to see how that could
possibly be the truth or reality. I fail to see where I said that. 

But I'm sure "you" know better than "me" what "my" goal is, right?

btw. Trying to change my words isn't going to change the facts.

And yes, I'm good enough to understand and know that all the components
I mentioned before are technologically and ideologically wise perfectly
shareable by both KDE and GNOME.
