We've been discussing this at Trolltech too. We have found the need to 
override the locale settings on number, date and time formatting to what 
the user specifies. I believe KDE would benefit from that too.

So, should this information be stored by Qt (QSettings)? Or would KDE set 
it at every application start? I guess the former would be better: 
KControl would just call a function to change the setting.
