Yes, I can and that is already what I have done locally to workaround the
shortcomings of the moc preprocessor. However, I though I would ask to see
if it would have been acceptable to avoid the addition of new files and use
of conditional macros by changing the minimum kdelibs version requirement
for the kde-baseapps git master repo instead. I guess the consensus is NO
and that is fine by me. I will commit what I have already done.
