That's not true :) I started this already and the headers already look
like pascal. But other developers told me to do the FPC cg stuff instead
of playing with perl ;) But if anybody else is interessted I can send
him the work which is already done. Within a few hours of work it should
be possible to get Qt3/KDE3 programs run with FPC.
