Bug Report 244 is patched

The little things tend to make a difference in our lives. Long ago in this galaxy, a KDE developer decided that being able to specify the number of files in Kate's Most Recently Used (MRU) file list, and to sort the files in the Documents file pane, was "useless crap."

To me those features never were "useless crap." I have missed those features for a long time.

I found the patches where those features were removed.

I am not a C++ coder, not even close. Yet I was able to reverse the patches and add a little "TQT" love.

By golly, the widgets actually appear in Kate! Once again I can set the size of the MRU list to something greater than 10 and sort the file list.

The number widget works great. I think some of you will love that restored feature.

Took me a while to realize the sorting option affects the files in the Documents list pane and not in the MRU list. :)

I uploaded the patch to bug report 244.

Woo-hoo! :)
