Great to see interest in flashcard programs. But why do we all have to start 
our own project (myself included)?

I have not tried your program, only looked at the two available screenshots.

In KDE we currently have two offerings, Parley and KWordQuiz. Parley is for 
advanced language learning and KWordQuiz is aimed at being simpler and more 
general purpose. Both of these programs have matured over several years. What 
were you missing in these two programs?

It appears from the screenshots and description that you use your own file 
format. In KDE we have standardized on kvtml. It is used by Parley, KWordQuiz 
and several of the other programs in the edu module. Would you be able to use 
this format? Is anything in particular missing in your opinion? See 
http://websvn.kde.org/trunk/KDE/kdeedu/libkdeedu/keduvocdocument/ for the 
shared code.

You seem to have nice support for pictures. This has recently been added to 
Parley, but is still missing in KWordQuiz due to lack of time on my part.
