Yes, the code is using too much of Qt internals. That is not a good idea.

My suggestion is simpler: make this code work in QFontComboBox directly. If 
it's a great improvement (and the previews do look like it is), then we can 
incorporate it into Qt.

As usual, KDE can benefit from it by way of a qt-copy patch, until Qt 4.5 
betas are released.
