This is not possible as they are part of the public API, and cannot be removed 
without breacking binary compatibility.

(And yes, there is Qt customers using such theme in their applications, and  
even reporting bugs against them, even if we tend to reject those bugs 

So the styles will NOT be removed from Qt 4.x
You will have to filter them out in the config.
