We are talking about an exceptional case here. This is not about adding any 
new functionality, but about adding an entry point for users who are willing 
to support the KDE community. So I don't think the hard freeze rules apply in 
the same way as for other changes to the libraries.

You say the consensuse is against you. I haven't heard any other opinions 
against adding the patch than yours, though. So where exactly is the consensus 
of not adding the patch?

Certainly not. This is a simple patch.
