Hi Simon,
for most things I agree. The practice of letting the .cpp files empty is 
bizarre. We should not overlock that c++ is not the newest and smartest 
programming language (but it is still my favorate one).

By the way - the linker for 95% of the programmers is usually very fast, it 
uses incremental linking. Compared to the gnu stuff their build system is 
very fast !!! It's all precompiled headers, incremental compile and 
incremental linking.

Could KDE use Trolltechs build system? KDE depends on QT anyhow, so why not 
use qmake?
