I won't interfere, but bear this in mind: each patch added to qt-copy is 
another source of breakage that Qt developers did not foresee. It may 
introduce problems somewhere else. It being good for Qt 4.5 doesn't mean 
it's good for 4.4.

We want to improve that, though. We have a few tricks up our sleeve and 
one of the ideas proposed was to let people run our testsuite, which 
would help people writing patches to verify that they haven't broken 

Until then, for KDE's stability sake, please be careful with qt-copy
