I am a newbie here, but I am just curious, why do there need to be two
different versions? Isn't a QT version enough? Also, if not, could the
QT version use dlopen() or some such to determine if the KDE libs are
present at runtime, and load them if they are?

Also, wouldn't it be less confusing if the packages were named sim-kde
and sim-qt?
