...which is exactly why I had no intention of including that overload in 
a kdeui version of KPixmapSplitter :-). FontSplitter (which is not a 
class I would advocate putting in kdelibs, at least not until it has 
several more users) is allowed to have this flavor because it's not 
attempting to be in any way generic, and can afford to provide only and 
exactly what its user needs.

Somewhere, there is a .sig so funny that reading it will cause an 
aneurism. This is not that .sig.
