Explain please.

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?
