	You misunderstood what I meant. You removed that paragraph from the 
context of the first paragraph of my last e-mail. What I meant is that if we 
use something like KLocale::commit() then we should not let others use  
KGlobalSettings::SETTING_LOCALE). If we just add 
KGlobalSettings::SETTING_LOCALE to kglobalsettings.h then it is correct that 
everybody uses it.

	The problem with KGlobalSettings::SETTING_LOCALE is that is solves only 
half the problem. I am using a hack to force the local KLocale instance in the 
clock plasmoid to reload the configuration files. There is no API in kdelibs 
to reload KLocale's configuration files and that is why I suggested using 
something like KLocale::commit() when Aaron complained about my second review 
of this patch.

	I am not familiar with this part of kdelibs and it is very clear it is a 
very sensible part of kdelibs. Anything wrong here will be noticed by 
everybody, that is why I am trying to do the minimum in this case.
