 Ah yes, gotta love this:

$ cat qobject_p.h
#ifdef QT3_SUPPORT
    QList<QObject *> pendingChildInsertedEvents;
    void sendPendingChildInsertedEvents();
    void removePendingChildInsertedEvents(QObject *child);
    // preserve binary compatibility with code compiled without Qt 3 support
    QList<QObject *> unused;

 The real problem seems to be that QtUiTools uses Qt internals such as 
QObjectPrivate, and it is a static library, so it gets included into 
libplasma, making libplasma depend on Qt internals.

 I don't think that's my fault, but I'll see what I can do about avoiding this 
with the #0180 patch.

 And BTW, just in case you don't remember/know why qt-copy/patches was 
created, it wasn't for patches that TT likes, but mainly rather the opposite.
