the overhead of installing the needed KDE development stuff. Better to just concentrate on
Freedesktop and ditch the KDE specific code altogether I think.

Thanks for the good analystic work. Maybe this is exactly a problem for 
the dublicate menus. Maybe OpenOffice renders the manu twice. first with 
normal Linux and seccond with kde4. And finaly you have the text twice. 
I have to say, I'm not familiar with this source. It's just a srange 
idea from an "outside view."
