KFilterDev changes from KDE3

I'm in the process to port kbackup from KDE3 to KDE4.

Now I'm stuck with a change that happend to KFilterDev:

In KDE3 I decided somewhere in my code which compression
to use by calling KFilterBase::findFilterByMimeType().
I later used the returned filterBase pointer in the following way:

    KFilterDev filter(filterBase, false);

whereby comprFile is a KTemporaryFile.

The problem ist, the constructor taking the KFilterBase is now private!

On the other hand I find the open method saying:

     * Open for reading or writing.
     * If the KFilterBase's device is not opened, it will be opened.
    virtual bool open( QIODevice::OpenMode mode );

So my question: How do I set the KFilterBase here ?

The only way coming close to what I need is the method,
but this needs the mimetype again.

static QIODevice *   device (QIODevice *inDevice, const QString &mimetype, bool autoDeleteInDevice=true)

Any idea how to and why it was changed that way ?

Best regards/Schöne Grüße
