I do not understand this logic.  Why do we assume GNOME users will
only use Nautilus, and KDE users will only use Konqueror?

Is is so much a stretch of the imagination to think that a KDE user
might actually want to run Nautilus (or vice versa)?

I think the adopted approach is better. If I am in Gnome, launching
Konqueror will run several KDE dependencies (like ARTS maybe? can't
remember what exactly) and they will stay running last time I checked.
If I were not a power user, I would rather be shielded from that
situation and enjoy better performance. If I were a power user, I
would disable showonlyin as needed.
