I think Bernd originally made a test with embedding emacs. As far as I know, 
he used the QXEmbed class to do that. You can ask on the kdevelop-devel and 
the kde-devel list for any help, I think others have experience as well as 
Bernd seems to be very busy with his phd.

Thanks for the info; when the KDE CVS is in a better shape next week we'll 
give it a try to see how things work. I would like someone else than me to 
undertake this as I am in my last week before my last exam and have to do 
some planning with my university for my elaboration I have to do (which is 
about cross-compiling in 3.0 as well) and at the same time I'm still 
searching for that accomodation in New York to leave here in two weeks. 

Any volunteers ?
