I'm a little bit surprised by this sub-thread and the reasoning. Apparently 
nobody is interested in writing and maintaining a qpt-plugin for non-plasma. 
The Plasma devs are willing to maintain such a plugin and then get complaints 
that it focuses on Plasma. Seriously?

If you think Qt's default is too bad, improve Qt. If you think it needs a more 
generic qpt-plugin which can be used outside of Plasma: do it. But don't 
complain to people doing actual work.
