  Basic QML works without this patch. (Actually, I can't be 100% sure 
because the display on my board is currently broken, but at least the 
application doesn't report an error when I start it.) So I don't think 
this is really needed for 2013.02.

  This patch is only necessary if you want to use one of those plugins in 
your QML application. I therefore don't agree with always installing 
them. There should be a configure option to enable it. Although, maybe 
making this 200K installation configurable for a package that already 
consumes 15M is perhaps a bit silly... Therefore:
