I did, and I gave up because it looked too boring. All the information you 
need is in the source code. So, UTSL :)

Biggest obstacle was the fact that there were no proper perl bindings for 
Qt.... I wasted some time trying to port one of the bindings to Qt 3.. :/

I was thinking of using a DCOP approach instead using available bindings, 
maybe you could take that route. That would be pretty flexible.
Take one of the existing frontends and hack on it.

Good luck,
