* It failed to build here, not finding Qt headers. You need to set $QTDIR
at the beginning of %build with something like this:

  [ -n "$QTDIR" ] || . %{_sysconfdir}/profile.d/qt.sh

* Package description says:

  "Note that you must be root to run this program!"

This is not good. Make it that it's executed via kdesu [or
consolehelper-gtk (aka usermode-gtk), and a PAM config file].

In the desktop file, it _is_ executed via kdesu, so the description
is misleading. It should not encourage anybody to run KDE as root.

* Due to using kdesu, a dependency on kdebase is missing. Dependency
on kdelibs is automatic.

* Desktop icon is stored in a path not found with GNOME.

Tarball contains duplicate source code. One version in directory "kyum",
the other in "kyum-0.6.3". Explains why it's twice its real size.

First and last line of this block doesn't serve any purpose.

%_docdir/HTML/en/kyum directory is not included.
No other documentation is included. No licence, no changelog.

%_datadir/apps/kyum directory and all its sub-directories are not
included in the package either.

Script is -x. Its default command interpreter /bin/python does not
exist on FC4. Such non-executable scripts are better stored in a 
data directory IMO.
