I'd like to move forward with fixing 721938  , which means including 
Without the patch and sni-qt , open source apps like VLC and owncloud
do not appear in the Plasma 5 systray . Furthermore systray icons for
proprietary apps such ask Skype, Spotify and Dropbox will be broken
So far I haven't seen a good reason not to include the patch ( from
what I've gathered talking to people on IRC )
I'd really rather have this fixed in Debian than have to fork the Qt4
packages and maintain them myself.
Thoughts? Suggestions? Opinions?
