Will fix that. I completely forgot to clean that up before making the diff.

That was pointless. If I had known I would have not wasted my time
attempting to fix this bug. On the other hand not addressing this bug
because it adds a new API in KTcpSocket means that the issue would
linger for at least another year and even then it will only be
addressed if someone remembers to address it. We still have few SSL
related regressions from KDE 3 that have not yet been resolved in KDE
4 to this day. Oh well...
