You can find it at branches/work/kde4/playground/libs/kconfig/
It doesn't work yet, but I'm planning on committing today the last bits that 
should make it mostly compatible with current KConfig.
With the new api there are only 2 functions that need to be implemented in the 
virtual bool parseConfigFile(const QString& filename,
                                            KEntryMap& pWriteBackMap,
                                            bool bGlobal, bool bDefault) = 0;
virtual bool writeConfigFile(const QString& filename, KEntryMap& entryMap,
                                          bool bGlobal, bool bMerge) = 0;
