This is definitely the way to go. The more I think about this, the more I
want it in 0.8.0, as the argument about KDE is significant, and given how
non-intrusive these changes are, I don't see any harm in going ahead with
them this close to a release.

Like I said on IRC: If we want to break the ABI, we better do it before the
stable release, not after.
