Hi Michael,

Thanks for the patch.  Approach looks sensible.  Rather than having two
separate types of line an alternative would be to have a formatting array for
each line which specifies the start position and index into the character array
for each change of format.  Something also worth noting is that QVector/QList
objects have a high overhead per-instance (somewhere between 20-30 bytes IIRC)
plus the memory allocator's own overhead - might be worth looking at
QVarLengthArray instead.

reviewboard is being funny at the moment - I'll post comments later on.

Unfortunately KDE 4.3 is now in deep-freeze (small fixes only) but I should be
able to get this in for 4.3.1.  More urgent though is tracking down actual
memory leaks - as opposed to inefficiency.  It might be possible to push fixes
for that into 4.3.0, I'd have to check with the release team.
