At the beginning I was not planning to incorporate TQT repairs. But then just 
when such repairs have helped solve various tricky bugs, so I decided to 
incorporate them. The reactions of users of my PPA can assume that the 
boundaries that I set not cause regressions. As I mentioned in earlier mails, 
I have limited the inclusion of the following patches:

-- Remove additional unneeded tq method conversions
-- Rename obsolete tq methods to standard names
-- Rename a few stragglers
-- Fix inadvertent "TQ" changes

If we agree on that, I would incorporate referred patches into all the other 
packages that are not yet included in the update. However it would require 
more time, so I prefer leaving it up to potential further update.

I understand. For debian and ubuntu's patches are not yet substantial. The 
fact that I have some integrated and some are not, has a simple explanation - 
some patches were in GIT after I released the update. :)

Yes, I thought about them several times. When we think about it both equally, 
so it probably will be a good idea :) We will wait for GIT branch or 
incorporate it again each in yourself?
