Ah, sorry - I see what it means now. I'm keen to do a kde doc comment to rdoc 
conversion similar to what I did for the java bindings javadoc comments. I 
think that would be really useful in conjunction with RubberDoc.

Yes, a documentation browser is a really important part of the rad 
environment, not just a demo thing really. With over 950 classes there is so 
much stuff that you really need a tool more powerful than rbqtapi.

If you check everything in when it's 100% finished, you lose all the cvs 
history which is often useful.

Excellent news! 

There's a blog here about the Quanta guy getting into a mess with cvs 
branches. It's not just us, they are indeed an error prone nightmare (imo) 
that should be avoided unless essential:
