[Kde-bindings] Few questions on Qyoto TODO list, again

again I have a few questions on the TODO list of Qyoto:

* Implement QTableModel and QListModel as subclasses of
QAbstractTableModel. Special case the RowCount(), ColumnCount(),
Data(), SetData(), Flags(), InsertRows(), InsertColumns(),
RemoveRows() and RemoveColumns() methods. These classes can't be
created from C# code, and only need dummy constructors with a Type
arg so CreateInstance() can use it to create C# wrapper instances.

 - What is the use of these two extra classes? They don't exist in 
the 'original' Qt API either, so why would we want to implement these? We 
could use QStandardItemModel as well, it would support everything needed, I 

* Write a tool in C# to introspect on the Smoke library like rbqtapi.

 - Should this tool only support the types and methods implemented in Qyoto or 
all the types in the Smoke library?

* Write a dbusxml2cs tool based on the C++ one

 - This is somewhat difficult, because it makes use of private headers of Qt. 
These headers aren't installed, so we would have to copy the needed things 
out of the files into dbusxml2cs. That would make maintaining of the code 
hard, though, as the private headers are changed quite often.
Easiest would be to completely rewrite/port it to whatever language, obvious 
would be C#, of course.
