What's your target? Frameworks? KDE Applications? Independent release?

It seems to have autotests but they are not run by either of these
  make check  
  make test

AccessibleObject seems like a dumping group, having functions like
	double maximumValue() const;
    QString imageDescription() const;
that if you read the description seems to me like they apply to "different 
types" of objects. Is it because it is mimic-ing the ATSPI API? Is there a way 
to have these things more split so they are grouped together more logically?

    Interfaces supportedInterfaces() const;
documentation is wrong, it says "return QStringList"

Can we remove the commented functions, i.e. managesDescendants, isRequired, 

Thanks for pushing this forward :)
