I know porting is like doing work twice, but maybe it would be easier to do a 
prototype with Qt3/KDE3 first, especially since the KDE4 platform is so much 
under continuous restructuring.

Depending on the skills in the other languages, it might even be possible to 
use the PyQt and PyKDE bindings for this prototype.
