[webkit-dev] transparent flash in qgraphicsview

I'm having problems with showing a transparent flash in a
QGraphicsView. Ofcourse I found the developments of Girish
Ramakrishnan on this on his blog
(http://blog.forwardbias.in/2009/12/flash-in-qgraphicsview.html) and
in webkit bug 20081 (https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=20081).
As far as I understand, there are two options:
1. override gdk_visual_get_system() using -Bsymbolic-function to force
flash to draw on a 32 bit pixmap
2. wait for flash to fix itself and ask for a 32 bit pixmap

I was wondering if there are any new developments on this? If not,
than overriding gdk_visual_get_system() is the way to go at the
moment? I don't understand this hack fully yet and I can't figure out
if I will be able to do this in my code and still use precompiled qt +
webkit library, or if I have to apply this hack in webkit and
recompile it.
