Nothing like that. It IS a set of patches agains kdelibs a mix of 3.1 and 3.2
and some 3.3).

I wonder if you read http://iidea.pl/~js/qkw/ ? I also dont remember If i've
speak with you, but I contacted Ralf over year ago, and
QKW is consisted of patches for most modules of kdelibs, including KTrader,
KParts (e.g. Kate part), KSycoca, etc. , thus it's not so small. Kexi was a
'training area' for it. I've also msvc build environment (something far more
complicated compared to Qt build env.)

I thing we should really work together, because once merge will be started, we
cannot wait: kdelibs changes too frequently. This was also a reason why I
eventually 'allocated some time resources' for final merge of QKW & kdelibs,
--I just dont want to update my sources to newer HEAD, again and again.

And yes, I am also interested in making the merge profitable for MacOSX
(non-X11) target (Kexi on MacOSX is my goal as well).
