I'm willing to help with this - I've written a number of 1.x->2.x
ports and getting a basic version running is usually a fairly
simple task. KDevelop is a pretty complex app, but I think porting
it can be done in a couple of weeks.

Definitely - though it is possible that some code cleanups could
start before then. For example using QString and const QString &
where the code uses char * at the moment. This works fine on both
1.x and 2.0, wheras the char *'s would be a bad idea under 2.0.

Much of this can be handled quite trivially using some macros,
though there would also be some additional work. I think Designer
is probably worth checking out as it does the same thing in the
other direction - a Qt app that uses macros to support KDE.
