Yes - they are GPL'd, but I don't want to set expectations too high. They are
Qt/KDE source converters, and not general purpose - you have to understand and
change the code a bit to do something new with them. That is why I will be
checking them into the KDE CVS. But the more forks the merrier in this
case. So if this code can be a start to doing other things like Sapphire or
Gecko Objective-C ports then that's great by me.

I'll send emails to Brian and Ian with the two converters as attachments. If
anyone else would like them please contact me.
