I heard about it recently. I haven't looked into it yet, but I'll be 
surprised if it's not like KJS in that it'll be unsuitable for use in 
pure Qt applications due to extensive KDE dependencies.

KDE is a great framework, but if you want to be portable you can't 
really use it at present, and that means you lose out on some goodies.
