to me this highlights things we need to work on within the Qt ecosystem:

* KDE represents a "somebody"; or put another way -> "Qt developers: stop 
treating one of your largest downstreams as a nobody." to claim nobody is 
asking for it when we have implemented it and hundreds of applications use it 
is a bit ... odd :)

* if it is too much effort for the core Qt team given their resources, then 
perhaps we need to find ways to re-purpose some of our efforts in kdelibs 
(something others have said long before this email, of course :). that 
requires, however, a working relationship in which all parties feel confident 
that efforts will not be going to waste, which is a role for open governance 
to fill

* clearer externally visible roadmaps for Qt so we can coordinate and avoid 
the left hand / right hand thing you observed. another role for open
