To be clear: My available time will not allow to refactor all the 
relating classes. I'm able to make a patch which adds the static methods 
I mentioned in http://lists.kde.org/?l=kde-core-devel&m=120483498825892&w=2

- can this or an equivalent api extension be approved  by TT ?  (It 
would not be good to add this patch to qt-copy, to use it in whole kde 
code and to be forced to revert this afterwards  ;-))
