That's why we should start now, considering how much is to be done...
More seriously, would you like to take over gdb frontend.
There're several things to be done for kde4 and the main task is to
investigate if gdb frontend should be rewritten using gdb-mi interface
current state: 
- mi is not finished and changing, we will not be able to interact 
with previous gdb versions (is it a problem considering kde4 timeframe?)
+ mi frontend will be much faster (no regexp-based parsing, eclipse already
has gdb frontend which is just fast) and easier to hack (?)
Also debugger should not be tied to c/c++ and debugger interface should be
easily reusable by other (non-gdb) frontends (ruby, etc.).
What do you think?
