  Nice.  You don't have commit privileges for patches ?  If that's the 
case, I guess that I can commit it for you (I'm slightly reluctant to 
commit for BLFS packages, but since they don't support anything other 
than x86 and glibc, I doubt it will hurt).

  I see you've sent this upstream - isn't kde an LGPL application ? 
Might have difficulty persuading them to accept GPL'd code ;)
