Had - that was solved. The issue isn't really an issue. Qt loads all the 
styles it ships with anyway, so by using them as plugins we don't gain much. 
Simon convinced me that we'd configure them built-in instead as plugins, that 
way we don't loose anything but have less problems with programmers using 
SuSE (who doesn't use them as plugins as well) and who want do directly 
derive from them. If Qt 4 will not load them all at once on startup, we'll 
maybe change that again then, for Qt 3.x it doesn't make much sense.
