I don't feel very comfortable out of Qt but I agree that doing it so that it
can be reused is the best solution. I guess that it can eventually be
proposed for fd.o.
I will ask to the KDE people if they would use a non-qt lib for something
like that.

Anyway, I don't find any reference to the blobs events in the MPX web.
Tomorrow I will try to compile it (it seems difficult)
