I've been working on a project that might interest you: a KDE interface for 
XChat. :)

Since the 1.9.x rewrite of XChat, the GUI code has been largely abstracted 
from the rest of the code - enabling us to write a KDE frontend for it.

The project is very incomplete at the moment, and I'm the only developer 
working on it at the moment (and I go back to university in 2 weeks :/). I 
haven't set up a website yet, but you can pull the current code from CVS:
  cvs -d :pserver:anonymous at login
  cvs -d :pserver:anonymous at co kxchat

KDE/Qt paths are hardcoded to /opt/kde3 and /usr/lib/qt3 until I've written 
proper configure checks (you can make a couple of symlinks, or edit the and re-run automake).

Then ./configure && make && cd src/fe-kde/ && ./xchat-kde.

As I say, it's not very exciting yet, but I'll be working on it as much as I 
can (and if anyone else wants to help out, it'll be finished faster :)).
