Sure, if you think KDE users aren't worth having an efficient Fedora
system. Loading two different graphic frameworks at the same time
wastes memory/diskspace, slows down startup time, and leads to
graphical inconsistencies. For people with low-end hardware that makes
a huge difference.

That's a suboptimal solution, originating from a lack of foresight in
designing those applications to separate the core functionality from
the GUI components. I would point to K/Ubuntu as an example where
desktop integration is tackled correctly: for every system tool there
is a KDE or GNOME frontend to be used on the respective desktop, and
the core functionality is shared in a common backend.

The only reason I mentioned the lack of KDE frontends for system tools
in Fedora is that a potential developer with Qt background asked where
he can help.
