Very interesting indeed.

I've been developing a non-KDE Qt S60 app recently to gain some
experience with the platform (or should I say *not* with the platform
thanks to the awesomeness that is Qt).

There is work being done in Amarok to separate GUI and logic for the
same reason.

Meanwhile the KDE-maemo effort has produced a working stripped kdelibs
for that platform already, but on S60 it's not yet functional.

My main goal is S60 (leading to Symbian^3 and Symbian^4) because of
it's market share. I also happen to have a Nokia 5800 (the tube) where
I miss some of the quality and features I enjoy on the desktop.

So, yeah. A sprint with some of the Qt experts there would do wonders
to progress.

Any dates proposed? My preference is to late this year, preferably
over a long weekend.


P.S. kde-maemo will be interested in this as well me thinks.
