[Kde-bindings] get libkonsolepart working within ruby

Hi all,

Richard and me talked yesterday about getting the konsolepart working with ruby.
It doesn't work with the code in trunk for now.

Code example: http://pastie.org/809341

Using the konsolepart in c++ (example from dolphin):

In the ruby example you get a konsole widget shown, but it doesnt do
what a konsole should do: providing a shell.

Richard said the konsolepart bases on a really weird header file and
would be need special handling in language bindings.

So the questions is:
- Should we try to ask the konsole KPart people to create a clean
interface that could be easly wrapped?
- Should we just add the part with its interface as it is? and how
could do the job? I've never learnt c++ well enough to know what they
(the kparts people) did there.
- Is there another way to get something like the konsolepart working with ruby?

Any other ideas/proposals?

Best regards,
