Note that Andreas committed a hack to KTcpSocket that makes https work
without the qt-copy patch.

An app that bypasses KTcpSocket and uses QSslSocket directly will still be broken.
I don't know if there are apps which use QSslSocket directly.

So we could conceivably go back to requiring Qt 4.3.3 instead of qt-copy+patches.
