Nice to hear from your :-). 

Currently I'm very busy to fix some seg faults of the native qt port, so that 
I can make a first beta release with a running designer/assistant and 
linguist (still using cygwin for io, but native gui). Because of this I can't 
help currently you, but I like to share some of my experience. 

Beside the above mentioned topic, there are some more possible things to do: 

1. include the explorer application links (Adding this application links to 
the kded deamon database) 

2. use the windows registry for retrieving file's extension and starting the 
related application from kicker (I have a basic working code for accessing 
the registry as qt application)

3. Add the explorer panels like system and network panel. (For this I have 
done some basic research) 

If someone is interested to get this stuff let me know.
