That entirely depends on your definition of what a color is.
Beginning in Qt4, and in other toolkits quite a bit longer, the definition 
of a color is *including* the alpha channel.  And with that in mind, the 
blend method indeed does exactly what it says.

So, you are trying to put your Qt3 experience to use while the concept has 
changed.  And for a method that is suppost to be usable for the entire 
lifetime of the KDE4 line that just doesn't help.

As I (and Aaron) stated elsewhere;  lets see where actual apps end up 
using this and avoid this 'design by committee' re-painting of the 

EOT, please.
