I am sure that in KDE this is not an issue, please refer to the manifest for 
details on expectations.
For instance that the primary code repository is on KDE and access to it is 
managed by KDE. Which typically implies very open access to any kde developer.

Would you have any idea what the response is from gnu about a GNU-project 
using Qt and/or kde libraries?

All in all, this sounds like an exciting project and one that I think fits well 
in the KDE community.  The only down side is likely that all those old-farts 
from my generation of KDE devs now will have even less time left ;)
