QtDBus is mostly done. I'm porting KDE code to it and it's mostly simple.
I managed to get kdecore, kdeui and kwallet (the first three KDE
libraries) in one Saturday.
This commit shows what I mean:
There are very few tricky cases, so far.
The largest problem, though, seems to be in kded. I'll see how to fix it
when I get to it.

I'll let you know once I actually run the code :-)
The obvious drawback is the fact that you cannot pass arbitrary types into
the bus. So you can't pass KUrl or KUrl::List, for instance. If you have
a KUrl::List, you have to qCopy it to a QStringList first.
