Thanks Allen for following up on this!

One question might remain though: autotests. If anybody has a good idea what 
to do in that test let me know. Else I'll just do a simple
QWidget *w = new QWidget;
KWidgetBlendAnimation *a = new KWidgetBlendAnimation(w);


Oh, and please take a few moments to think about the name of this class. I 
don't like it.
Perhaps it would be better to have "fade" instead of "blend" in the name?
- KFadeWidgetUpdate
- KAnimateWidgetChange
- KFadeAnimation

I'll try. But screencaptures of effects often look a lot worse than in 
reality. But if the quality is acceptable I'll include it. Hmm, adding it to 
the apidox means commiting the movie to kdelibs. Do we want that?
