The KDE_EXPORT attribute takes effect even on the declaration.

In fact, given old gcc versions' behaviour, the preferred way of 
implementing an exported function is:

void func() KDE_EXPORT;
void func()

Some gcc versions will choke if you add KDE_EXPORT to the line starting 
the function implementation, some others will choke depending on where 
you add it to that line.
