Patch looks good to me.

It makes me realize that we leak qt_argv, but we always did, nothing new there.

Hmm. If we want to get rid of KApplication for kde4, then we'll need to simply pass
all argc/argv from main to QApp, and then KCmdLineArgs::qt_arg[cv] can go away.
I'm not sure why KCmdLineArgs took care of filtering out non-qt options, when
Qt can do that by itself already.
