When I gave it a (quick) look earlier today, nothing grave catched my eyes 
when it comes to Qt5/kF5 interfacing code (just a few favourite nitpicks of 
mine, which are already reviewed/pushed :) ).
No idea about the custom RL painter myself or proper ways.

Two things I noticed though which you ideally give some look:

kdiff3 -h & -v show both a window as well as print output on the commandline.
The windows are a bit unexpected and unusual given one already is on the 
commandline, perhaps that feature to also show a window could be removed?

You might also want to port the debug output from fprintf(stderr, ...) & Co. 
to qCDebug() & Co.
