Next maintenance fork of the QuickAccess widget, patched for use with KDE SC 4.5+

First of all: I have no - I repeat NO - skills in coding. I even do not understand what I did here.
I just looked into the sources for the trash widget before and after the change and tried to apply the same to the quickaccess widget. Astonishingly it works. But use at your own risk and please don't blame me for errors or expect help from me, I cannot, sorry.

I altered the files quickaccess.cpp and quickaccess.h but left the original files as quickacces.h.orig and quickaccess.cpp.orig so whoever wants to can have a look at the differences.

So what IS the difference?
Since KDE SC 4.5 the max. size of the panel can be set via systemsettings. When increasing the panel height the icons will adjust to that maximum size. With this patch the quickaccess widget is also able to do so. If you use the original non-patched 0.8.1 version with KDE SC 4.5 and increase the panel height the quickaccess icon will stay at max. size 32x32, ignoring systemsettings.

Look at the screenshot: Without the patch the quickaccess folders in the panel would have the size of the trash and the dashboard icon (both are fixed for KDE SC 4.6).

The original maintenance fork 0.8.1 can be found here: http://kde-look.org/content/show.php?action=content&content=101968

Thanks, it seems to work, and it's nice not to need a patch. I've updated the Arch Linux package here,

I mean, start with the current version, patch the files, and let that be the new version.

Please test. I have NOT used the suse patch, instead I have removed all references concerning dolphin sorting as Peter Penz, the dolphin maintainer, suggested.

Thanks. As it seems version 0.9 is in the works, I hope the 4.5 icon size adjustment will be implemented. After that I'll remove this contribution, it is just for the impatient ones. ;)

Where did you hear 0.9 is being worked on?

If you're counting on jmthomas' maintenance fork, I hope you realize when he wrote that 0.9 was "coming soonish" it was May 2009.
