Oops, that's WRONG. My initial "32 mouse buttons" updates already 
created 32 bit mask fields, because all of the Plugin, QPA and Mouse 
Button Event instances of Button Mask data are defined as 
Qt::MouseButtons datatype. The changes to copy ALL button State bits can 
therefore wait until a later 5.x Release (5.1, or whatever).

But my main question 'Does KDE want this capability?' remains open. 
Please advise!
