Can you list the above in the form of Qt API? I'm not sure we have most of 
what you listed above in our API today and we don't have any plans of adding 

I understand that there is a lot of features that KDE wants, and under other 
circumstances I wouldn't hesitate to give, but at this point I need to weigh 
the cost: if giving this API will require a major dependency we're not 
prepared to give.
