Actually I don't have too much trouble maintaining kalyptus considering how 
complicated it is - you are talking about 6 man months work for a replacement 
in my opinion. 

I don't think the moc parser is good enough, and we should use one of Roberto 
Raggi's full blown C++ parsers like the KDevelop one, or another one that the 
QtJambi bindings use. But that is a huge amount of work, and it is much more 
important to get your stuff with modular smoke working first. And then 
simplify the over-complicated perl config stuff and use straight cmake tests 

I am still trying to get back into bindings development again, after back 
trouble, feeling burnt out, and too much day job work to do.

It's the build system stuff like 'qtguess.pl.cmake' that is really difficult 
to maintain, and I that I would like to get rid of first. I'm still trying to 
manage to reply to Dirk's recent mail about how the kde smoke bindings are 
unbuildable. In fact I've been able to build them fine, apart from kde 
headers coming and going every other day (latest examples are kfilefilter.h 
and kcatalog.h going AWOL).
