Again, would Debian accept such a patch? Upstream intends that patch for KDE SC 4.5, and I don't believe they will apply it to the KDE SC 4.4.x line. I know the majority of the work has already been done. I can probably backport those patches to KDE SC 4.4 before the freeze date, but I don't want to start the work if there's no chance for it to get into Debian. -- Boyd Stephen Smith Jr. ,= ,-_-. =. firstname.lastname@example.org ((_/)o o(\_)) ICQ: 514984 YM/AIM: DaTwinkDaddy `-'(. .)`-' http://iguanasuicide.net/ \_/
