Why do all KMessageBox methods call exec()?

I need a KMessageBox with a timeout -- that is, I want to be able to do
something like this:

QTimer *timeout = new QTimer(this);
KMessageBox *box = KMessageBox::questionYesNoCancel(...);

OK, I can understand that the question* and similar static methods call 
exec(), but what about createKMessageBox()? I would expect that it creates 
the message box -- no more than that

The attached patch adds a NoExec option to the message box, so that you can
get createKMessageBox() to behave like I would expect it to - creates a
message box and does nothing else. Seem reasonable?

Don't worry, 't ain't no shame to be stupid - ol' mouse.
