well, there are some x11-dependent parts, which are nice to have, but not
really neccessary, like transparency in konsole, or shadows of windows in the
i wanted to make these dependencies optional.

well, iirc, i didn´t add the original #ifdef Q_WS_X11, but i only added the

this is ok with me. unfortunately i am quite busy at university at the moment,
