Nobody has been willing to take on the task so far. Problem in my case is time. And competence: for example, I don't even know which Qt is required from <http://qt.nokia.com/downloads/downloads#lgpl>: the complete SDK, or the framework alone?

and don't remember seeing this. (When I tried to subscribe to the dev
list it seemed that it's invitation-only.)

I'll try: no-one said I'll succeed

I think it was these that I tried the last time. I will have another go
