Well, the right thing to do was to include files from the "taglib"
directory. Yes, it's more work, but duplicating the files is a larger
maintaince problem. The files were out of date even before the 1.6
release. I didn't feel comfortable updating something which I believe
is a wrong solution, but on the other hand I didn't want to break
kdesupport, so I just left them alone.
