First, I've never written a C++ program in my life (I only write C
programs that write C++ programs).  Given my limited understanding, I
don't know how this code compiles.

Sorry, don't know. I've only ever translated the kmyapp example which
uses getHelpMenu().

Any documentation you download relates to the current snapshot. The
documentation I have includes getHelpMenu() but I know it is later than
KDE 1.1.2. Trust the header files, don't trust the documentation.

...I just wish there was better communication from the KDE developers
about API changes.
