yup, that would rock. what sort of time scale do you see for 
your work on this?, i'd really like to get this done for 3.2.1,
so, maybe i could work on it?

my other todo list item is a good gui designer, and thusly 
the last missing bit of a rad environment, but the likelyhood
of me ever getting around to writing this is minimal :)

feel free to track my arch (http://www.gnuarch.org/) repo then ;-)
(the file in question is miscprogs/qtruby/RubberDoc.rb)

also, when commiting i use the arch changelog as the cvs log, 
so its easy to see exactly what was changed for any given file.

yeah. that really sucked, so much time wasted :(
but alas, due to kde's politics i'm unable to ignore 
the need for branches. luckily keeping my stuff in
a local arch repo means that i'll keep incremental
change logging and thusly i'll not need to branch
kde cvs ever again.
