But it is worth the effort. Should I help? Then check in you changes and we
try to get a compiling branch within the next days.

Looking again into the code it shows up ObjectStore is essential
to current design of kst, removing it is like a redesign.

But I simply don't like the "all is a Object" ansatz (I assume as physicist
you know this word ;) with all the down casting and getting objects by name.
Anyway I would not touch it. We should proceed with your changes.
