Anything you can put text that looks like a link should work - this is your 
point, right? So just KMessageBox isn't enough.

I see your point, however there are a number of users of kdialog, and they 
have expectations of future behaviour based on the current behaviour. If you 
want to add it for 3.5 (and that is a good plan), it shouldn't be on by

Or only commit for KDE4.
