  One thing to be very careful about: Make sure that any future changes won't 
break usage patterns such as those in scripts, or how the Kst files work.  
Even if we can implement workarounds, it can make it messy to support over 
time.  We have this problem already in various places in Kst.  That being 
said, I'm sure it won't be much of an issue, but it's good to keep in mind.
