When did I become the windeco maintainer? :-P

Anyway, I think is most 
relevant here. AFAICT, there is an outstanding question how to proceed.

Again, not sure what's happening with QToolBox since no one seems to 
have time to work on it. If someone could submit a patch so that it 
*draws*, however badly, I could probably review it.

The audit could be a JJ/krush thing (I'll review any patches), it's a 
matter of finding where we are using e.g. window text against button 
background. Best way is to figure out all combinations of light-on-dark 
and dark-on-light (there are 16; window, view, selection, button) and 
make simple palettes with such colors, then check out uidemo from the 
oxygen playground and see what is illegible.
