They make a DBus call on org.kubuntu.restrictedInstall that the
kubuntu-notification-helper KDE Daemon listens on. KNH has several
"groups" of restricted packages (Flash, multimedia, screensavers, and
kopete gcall stuff). KNH looks at the package that the program has
requested for installation, and offers to install the related group by
the systray applet/knotify.
