I wanted something similar for KMid2, having a KConfigDialog using a KConfigXT 
generated Settings class. I wanted to know when certain properties have been 
modified by the config dialog. The bad news are that the signals are emitted 
only when you call in your code the generated class setters methods, but 
KConfigDialogManager doesn't use the setters to modify the values, so the 
flags are never updated in the generated Settings class, and the signals are 
never emitted. I guess that this should be warned in the tutorial, to avoid 
more people get confused. KConfigDialogManager uses dynamic properties 
instead of the setters, so maybe QDynamicPropertyChangeEvent provides a 
solution, or is there something better?
