   Until we see concrete evidence that this will never be used, please do not 
remove it.  I just don't see why we should risk breaking KDE2 applications if 
we don't need to at this point.  I've even recently seen KDE1 applications!  
It's only a few lines of code, doesn't harm anyone, and really is worth far 
less than the massive thread it's created.  If it ain't broke.........
