I highly recommend to not use KWin 4.3 anymore. And RHEL or SLES are very bad 
examples. Users of those want the old versions and do neither want to install 
a recent version of KDE software nor of TDE software. They use the old system 
because of the provided security by RedHat or SUSE. Installing anything third 
party invalidates the reason to use RHEL/SLES in the first place.

kwin 4.3 does not use anything of Nepomuk. That indirect and optional runtime 
(!) dependency got added around 4.7.
