Yes, I have been looking at the widget for some time, and I think that it
will be easier to port it, rather than try to fix it.
Just like you, I'm very wary of getting into porting the widget to the Qt4

I will look a little further into it before doing any real work.

In the meantime, is there any other area you think I could get my hands
dirty on? :)
