I'm back after a three-week vacation.

When we included KWordQuiz it was decided that it should be a flashcard 
program and not specifically designed for languages. Thus, I think it's 
important to keep KVocTrain. I know a lot of work is needed. I'll try to do 
KURL, XML gui, and keyboard layout switching in that order. 

Important patches have been submitted regularly, most recently the keyboard 
layout switching patch (which does need additional work), so I think there is 
a general interest in the program.

I have done most of the work for KConfigXT for KWordQuiz. I have some problems 
with widgets that can't be managed automatically, but I hope to resolve them 
(basically getting the Apply and Default buttons to behave properly). 
Otherwise I'll commit what I have and have someone else look at it.
