I'm currently a few days in processing patches from bug 2110 (tdebase on 
openbsd). Most are just ifdef, or portions of code specific to OpenBSD. The 
last that I will soon edit are patches to enable building without tdehwlib - 
again just a few ifdefs.

Can I continue integrating these patches without discussion?
