These patches are now available, but are held up in KDE's Review Board waiting
for someone to say "Ship It". They can be made available "upstream" (i.e. for MacPorts)
at a moment's notice.

These are going very well. I should have them finished this weekend, if you would
like to use them "upstream". They will make KDE bug reporting become independent
of KDE core software and its idiosyncrasies, on all platforms.
