Hello Jeff,

it’s been some time that we had the conversation below and I have to tell you 
the same thing I told Jamie in a haskell-cafe mail sent a few minutes ago: 
The student who wrote the Qt binding generator never managed to send me a 
final version of his code. At least, I was able to make him send me the 
current state. I don’t think he will improve this code anymore.

If you want to have a look at the code, please visit


and follow the link to the code and have a look at the building tips. In case 
you would like to improve the binding generator, I’d be happy to receive 
patches. :-) 

Sorry for these bad news.

Best wishes,
