    You can even use KWin as a standalone window manager (run kwin --replace on some XFCE environment for example) so it's not in anyway dependent of startkde script or systemd.

      This. And please, PLEASE, make them run in different processes -- the diagnosing of such problems (and memory leaks) will be instantaneous and not requiring even developer tools.

        This should already be fixed in Plasma2. IIRC lower-end changes in Qt were required first and Qt5 offers those.

          I don't think that is feasible. Plasmoids is not some additional widgets. They are the core desktop. as I understand it.

            It was done in plasma2, which will be in KDE5.0 whenever that comes out.

            I don't think the devs considered porting that work back to KDE4 because it's going to cause a pretty massive API change, breaking widgets that rely on being in the same process as the desktop.
