Hi there,

while looking over the kdeui widgets I stumbled upon KArrowButton which is a

looking better).

As according to lxr only kdelibs/nepomuk/core/ui/kmetadatawidget.cpp and 
some parts of umbrello are currently using KArrowButton I'd like to ask if 
we should simply deprecate it in favour of QToolButton? If not, please tell 
me what it should look like so I can fix it.
