Using QActions in KDE programs is wrong in my opinion. QActions are second 
class citizens throughout our complete api. KShortcutsEditor doesn't support 
them, KXMGui doesn't support them and probably many more parts of our api. 
They provide no support for global shortcuts. So i consider that change
