 No. The next best option is still patching Qt, even if TT doesn't give a damn 
about the patch. That's their problem, not ours, and there's no point in 
complicating our lives by adding a duplicate function in kdelibs. 
Qt-copy/patches is not only for patches TT like, it's also for patches they 
don't like. Why do you think Qt3-based qt-copy patches has so many so old
