It would be nice to do that on Sabotage. the last time i tried to build a KDE app (kdevelop), there were so many dependencies on KDE services and libraries that i gave up after a day. however that was pre-sabotage so things may work better these days... but it's probably still a lot of work to add all required packages. i personally wouldn't mind having kdevelop available, even though it requires tons of RAM and harddisk space, as long as it doesn't have hard dbus/systemd deps... --JS
