Fine. We have non-kde users who are forced qt/kde down their throat. Imagine
a gnome-centric user, how does she feel having forced kde down her throat? 
(or does she use that <censored> gnome sw instead?).

We do have multimedia/kmplayer, which can build something that kde users
will like. Anyone non-desktop-environment will just happily use the slim
mplayer package.
