if that is going to happen, can we please have someone look at the API of that 
class. it's particularly horrible. there is nothing language specific in that 
class at all; it essentially a button that pops up a drop down with columnar 
data. the API seems to say otherwise in places, but it's really not true. it 
needs to be generalized to avoid being the red headed step child of kde libs.
