        Out of curiosity, are all these patches going to eventually get rolled 
into the KDE code base itself?  I ask, because I find myself much preferring 
to compile all my own stuff (and thus avoiding a special set of dependency 
software for each big project like this I install).  However, KDE doesn't 
compile "out of the box" on Solaris anywhere near as easily as it used to.  
(these days I give up after a while)
