Progress on the Qt part is slow. My patch exposed a bug in the qfsw
unit test and fixing that exposed bugs in another qfsw backend. Every
time I update my patch it takes several weeks to get a Qt developer to
look at it, because this isn't exactly a high profile part of Qt and
they're busy getting 4.7 out.

I haven't submitted the KDE part yet, because it doesn't work without
the Qt part.
