I'll never understand why would one want a KDE file picker forced down
the throat of a GTK+ app...

By the same logic, should KDE apps running under GNOME use the GTK file chooser?

IMHO, the kde-integration patches should be pushed upstream, and only
applied after upstream has reviewed and accepted them... for the same
reasons why the BFS scheduler is in kernel-tmb and not the in

I know I've said the same thing before and I know nothing will
probably change with regards to those patches, but hey at least I
tried... :)

(I've had to 'rpm -e --nodeps kmozillahelper every time it gets
updated, I guess I'll have to just go on using the upstream binary
tarball, but that's a personal matter and slightly off topic...).
