Ok, there's some trickery there.

But I know gcc 2.95 can't comply with adjusting covariant returns in some 
cases, at least. I know because I wanted to do just that for 
KNetwork::KServerSocket::accept, but I couldn't. I was using gcc 2.95 at 
the time and it generated an internal error.

You can still see the warning there:

   * @note This function should return a KStreamSocket object, but 
   *       deficiencies prevent such an adjustment. Therefore, we return
   *       the base class for active sockets, but it is guaranteed
   *       that the object will be a KStreamSocket or derived from it.
