No real problem right now, KDM (better the face chooser in the control center) 
eats a lot and munchs it to it's needs:

	QSize ns( 48, 48 );
	if (p.size() != ns)
		p = p.convertDepth( 32 ).smoothScale( ns, QImage::ScaleMin );

Not too nice but works. 

Still if using faces as icons and faces are such symbolic images we might want 
to have prerendered images in different sizes like the real icons (unless 
they are available as svgs :).
