I'm actively developing it on Qt 4 and porting it to Qt 3.3 in my spare 
time (which is not much and requires crude hacks :( ), a snapshot can be 
found at http://trolls.troll.no/~harald/accessibility/. Moving quickly 
to KDE 4 would allow us to break BIC in kdelibs where it is needed for 
the accessibility stuff.

Development can begin in parallel to the first betas.

Since he hasn't answered: If you compile with QT_COMPAT, most code 
should either work out of the box or require a simple search/replace 
(QFoo -> Q3Foo).
