Yes; however, given that kded is used in a default configuration of Plasma 
5, the end result is that the Plasma panel (and krunner, and possibly other 
components) "won't work" with the current version of Qt 5.6.

It wasn't my intention to judge your responsiveness in any way, sorry that 
it sounded that way. In fact, I appreciate your swift feedback that you 
gave me on the relevant bug reports despite your current workload -- thanks 
a lot!

Understood. What about option three -- applying that patch and 
investigating later. I understand that there's a risk that it includes 
other unknown failures to applications other than kded/kiod; however, I 
think that "KDE works, there may be some failures elsewhere" is a better 
outcome than "KDE definitely doesn't work, there may be other failures 
elsewhere". Other people might see it differently, my two cents is that 
I've been running my Plasma5 desktop with this patch for a few days, and it 

But anyway, I just wanted to respond to a call for known regressions; it's 
up to the Qt project to evaluate possible impact of various possible 
actions and determine its priorities here. I don't have much of a horse in 
this race, really.
