It was too late to be able to make it for Qt 4.8 therefore QtWebKit
2.2. This is why nothing has change in Qt or KDE. I don't think we'll
have a new minor release of Qt 4 with QtWebKit so I don't think there
is a way for your patch to make its way to KDE for example. Unless
someone here step up to release a QtWebKit 2.3 with all the QA work it
requires then it could find its way as a separate release and add-on
of Qt 4.8.

I would recommend you to start looking how it could be solved in Qt5 +
WebKit2 so you are sure it will make its way one day in Qt5 :D.

Sorry about that.
