Parent article: Camp KDE: Geolocation
My first thought is why use a library for geolocation?
Geolocation data should be accessed through dbus, so that the user only needs to configure the source (or list of sources) once in a dbus server, and all apps can query the location without having to worry about settings and all that.
If freedesktop standardizes a dbus api for geolocation, then kde apps and gnome apps can interoperate without caring what the backend is.
