Very nice idea! Unfortunately I can't help, at least in the near future, for 
lack of time.

If you have some time to spend on it, why not try to do it yourself? There's 
always a first time with programming, and KDE apps can be written in several 
different programming languages, some of which are much easier than C++, like 
Python and Ruby. New programmers are most welcome!
