Worth looking into I suppose.

Do you mean the Qt dbusxml2cpp compiler? That's an interesting idea.
Harald's qdbusaccessible already contains some of the xml files. Together
with pyQt, it might avoid the dbus-python binding problems I mentioned. I
assume that can that be done without creating a linked dependency on Qt in
Orca? pyQt currently supports up to Qt 4.1.3 I wonder if/when it will
support Qt 4.2, particularly the D-Bus support?
