You misunderstand... Do a  grep '#define signals' $QTDIR/include/qobjectdefs.h
Notice something? :-)
Oh, and please ignore David's BrowserExtension hack ;-)

Sigh. When will you understand that bug reports and criticism are
not condemning someone :-((

IMO, it's not. The old dialogs were very efficient. The new one in
unusable because you have to click on each gui element before you
enter something. In the time you have filled out the dialog, you
could have typed in the method by hand twice...

I have them installed, and they are not happy with merging into empty

I don't understand a word ;-) It works nicely in Cervisia (without
actions) and Konqueror (KActions). Though I now notice that several
actions in Konqueror don't have status texts.
