What are the changes? Can't they be contributed back into 
QSyntaxHighlighter? I mean, you're sitting at the source...

The other question is: How does that relate to the planned rich text 
editing (composing basic t/enriched and t/html) in KMail? Is there a 
way to coexist for the two? Won't that be confusing to the user ("What 
will be sent how? Is every mail I compose now automatically rich text 
b/c the quoted text is coloured?")?


History teaches that grave threats to liberty often come in times of
urgency, when constitutional rights seem too extravagant to endure.
