It isn't hard to integrate in configure.py. Most of the work is 
creating the sip files, which is tedious to do manually for a 
new module. I have a tool (presip) which does most of that 
automatically if given a project file, but it's a little broken 
at the moment due to changes in sip.

It shouldn't take me more than an hour or two to get it working 
(doesn't appear to have any major difficulties).

What would really be helpful is to have an example app and/or 
some kind of test code - preferably something simple that would 
allow people (including me) to see how kmdi can be used. If 
you'd like to think about that, I can try to have a PyKDE module 
by the end of the week that you can write code against.

PyKDE could really use a lot more of that type of thing, because 
there are still a lot of features that, as far as I know, are 
untested by users.
