It's called "code reuse". It doesn't make sense to implement file browsing
multiple times, once for the desktop to display the Desktop folder and once
for everything else. That's also why the KDE 4 folder view plasmoid is in
kdebase (not kdebase-workspace) and shares code with Dolphin and Konqueror.
