[PATCH]: KURLDrag::decode() and the use of explicit

the attached patch fixes KURLDrag::decode(). Right now an encoded URL is 
encoded once more and not decoded (i.e. %B0 ('°') becomes %C3%82%C2%B0 
if your local encoding is UTF-8 or if you use any other protocol than 

This bug could be avoided if the contructors of KURL would be explicit. 
All the implicit casts in KDE and Qt make it difficult to read the code 
(you don't see what happens) and make it easy to oversee bugs like in 
KURLDrag::decode(). If you don't know what I mean then tell me what the 
following code does:

  KURL url(42);

With GCC 3.3 it compiles without any warning.


P.S.: can I apply the patch?
