Just a thought: would it be possible to set up some
absolutely minimal (just load one image specified on
the command line) application using QT4/KDE4 which
would make use  of the new libkipi and the already ported plugins,
so that they could be tested?
This would allow to see any pitfalls (if any ;-) already at this stage
of the conversion and take this into account for other plugins?

Well, I don't no anything about what would be involved, so
this might be just a stupid idea... ;-)

Best, Arnd
