"complete"? - Yes.
"Thomas happy"? - No :-(

The class grabs the keyboard for the (managed) focused widget in active 
windows (as it should), BUT the only "protection" against malicious losses 
is to regrab the keyboard every 500ms (and make the lineedit white on red 
if that fails)
Martin suggested to declare X11 setups which allow to break grabbing 
"unsupported", but I'm not entirely happy with that.
We'd need to figure whether
a) there's a way for a client to check whether it still holds the grab
b) or alternatively adding a second client (ie. process) to guard the first 
one otherwise (by trying to grab the keyboard and when that works while 
client #1 is supposed to have the keyboard, sth.'s fishy here)

I assume kwidgetsaddons should use the KDE palette definitions ("bad" 
color?) - if color indication is sufficient. But that's subject for a 
kwidgetsaddons review.
