Hi Arne,

I tried some time ago to use FSO DBUS with QT-4.5, as i'm a new comer 
to qt, i've learned the basics with their online doc[1] and 
tutorials[2] and did googling a lot! Then i took a look at telepathy 
as a serious QT/DBUS real-life example.

I tried to use their (telepathy) dbus proxy generator, but finally i 
gave up more by lack of time. The FSO XML specs has to be enhanced to 
ease the work of the generator...
Anyway i will have to go back to this in few month as  we will use FSO 
DBUS interface likely with QT in some incoming project within my company.

If you find anything interesting about QT/DBUS/FSO, please share it!

Have fun!
