Thats great, I hadn't realised you were that far along. C# bindings for KDE3 
will be cool.

I just checked out the KDE CVS and your commit wasn't there yet, so I guess 
I'll wait for your savannah project to get up.

On a semi-related note, I am trying to build the gtk-sharp bindings on Linux, 
using my self-hosted mcs, and am having some difficulties. Namely, I get 3 or 
4 of these errors when I run a "make linux"

./StructBase.cs(51) error CS21: Type `System.Xml.XmlElement' does not have 
any indexers defined
./StructBase.cs(51) error CS154: indexer can not be used in this context, 
because it lacks a `get' accessor

In the readme it says that it is only possible to compile Gtk# on windows. Is 
this still the case? And if so, why is the "make linux" there? For future
