Fine ! I'm happy to see it's not a problem for you. Of course,
Guidance will follow the classical integration way of any KDE apps
(kdereview again, ...)

I have no problem to also give an hand to port it to KDE 4 when this
will be planned. We just have to wait that everybody agrees and the
moment to start this.
