Unfortunately Stack Overflow and the Windows forum are full of
interoperability issues.

Sounds good that you had no issues though. I am envy. :-)

Yes, but we do not want end users to install emerge, etc, either. :-)

In other words: it can be managed without ithese helper softwares n my opinion.

I am personally very much interested in getting that workflow forward.
I think it could be nice to get everything done properly for KDE
development. Consider that the KDE Arch developer nicely built up
frameworks development packages.

I think it would cool to get them ported over and share some work with
a Linux distribution in that sense. Please do not get me wrong. I am
not saying emerge would not remain useful. It is all about personal
choice I guess. :)

PS.: I should have probably continued with this email on the
kde-windows mailing list though, as it is getting a bit too
technical... So pardon me.
