I guess the more important question here then is how?  I am sure we can just 
copy and paste in the code from Qt solutions.  Is this something Trolltech 
needs to do, or would we be able to work some other arrangements out?  I 
suppose we have to protect both Trolltech's interests and KDE' s in this 
area, but it sounds like you might be willing to work with us on this.
