Well it is actually simple.  All you have to do is build your headers in say a 
QStringList and simply join them at the end using the HTTP header delimiter, 
"\r\n".  This is of course untested and the above patch is accepted.  I think 
I like the generic customHTTPHeader that Simon came up with for now.  In the

this has been suggested several times now. and after loosing 15 minutes
of work last night i'm leaning towards agreeing with its usefulness atm :)

was there any conclusion on the old discussions?, it would be very nice for
a cvs co of kde to give me this. its one of the things that many windows
users (me included) really expect.

i'd prefer for this (or rather versioning) to be in my favourite fs 
personally. but thats not gonna happen for a while so i'll stop dreaming.

Re: Re: libtrash ?

Wouldn't this extend out of the realm of "Desktop Environment" though? I think this is more of a distro based
issue and not one for KDE. I don't think it would be a good idea for KDE to implement something that would have
system wide ramifications.

Although it would be nice if the 'trash' could all use a central location ie. for KDE, Gnome & libtrash to all
use the same repository for such 'trashed files'.

Just my 2 cents on the issue.

Regards,
Jason

... and attached is the other side. :)

so now i'm wondering, if we should not consider my patch a bugfix and
simply put it into 3.1. it is part of suse 8.1 (which is kde 3.0.3 based,
btw), so they seem to consider it stable - except for the kdesktop_lock
part it's only a few LOC anyway. the one problem we have is one new
string in kdesktop, one in kicker and two in kdesktop_lock and a missing
icon (although suse simply reused some icon called "start" or something
(a rocket)).
should we?

greetings
