TDE Qt4 theme engine [TDE spring fundraiser]

It's time for our TDE spring fundraiser!

The TDE project relies on your financial support to continue development
of this reliable and easy-to-use desktop environment.  As my way of saying
thank you I have developed a new theme engine for Qt4 that allows you to
use your TDE styles and file dialogs in new Qt4 applications, as well as
interface methods required to easily convert common Qt4 objects to TQt3
objects and vice versa.

If we can raise the $2,000 required to keep the TDE project running for
the rest of the year by April 30, 2012, I will release the source code for
this new theme engine under the GPL and also integrate it into the next
TDE release.  Once this engine and the conversion methods are part of TDE,
the foundation will have been laid for work to begin on a Webkit-based
replacement for the aging KHTML engine.

Donations can be securely made to the project at this address:  I will also update that page from
time to time with progress made towards the $2,000 goal.

Library requirements:		TQt3, Qt4, and TDE core
Lines of C++ source code:	4207 (theme engine and Qt4 object translator)
License:			GPL
Functional quality:		ALPHA

Screenshots of the theme engine in action are attached, showing common TDE
styles in use with Qt4 applications.  If you want to see this engine
released and think the TDE project is worth a few dollars, please donate
to help keep the TDE project going!
