quickaccess widget - please adjust to KDE 4.6 (code available)

QuickAccess is unmaintained. Even the fork that was once created is unmaintained.
I would suggest that someone with close connections to KDE (Harald, Aurelien, Jonathan?) 
uploads the sources to KDE's git server. Then everyone with commit access can add 
occasional updates.
Maybe you could even apply for commit rights and maintain it.
