I had a similar thought.  Carsten's description of what's required to get 
going with KDE4 development is accurate, and it must sound very daunting to 
someone trying to get started.  Then there's the question of whether the 
machines these kids use will even be running KDE4 any time soon.

Though we usually say there's no point developing against KDE3 anymore, I 
think in this case, it makes sense.

To get started, maybe you can look at the source code of an existing similar 
application like KBruch or KPercentage.  I think you'd be able to turn either 
of those into a prototype of your app pretty easily.

Keep us posted, and feel free to ask questions on this list.
