Hi Patrick,

What is your concern?  This theme engine is designed to allow Qt4
applications to integrate into TDE in a better way than before, and
personally I wouldn't hesitate to file interface-related bug reports on
any Qt4-based project that does not integrate well into TDE when this
engine is in use.

If you can give a specific range of concerns (i.e "TDE is going the wrong
direction due to projects X and Y") then I will try to address those
concerns in a reply. :-)
