Hey there,

we at KDAB would be interested in making QWebChannel [1] "official". What I 
mean by that is merging its code into QtWebKit and publishing its 
functionality via either

- a new libqmlwebkitchannelplugin.so or similar
- the existing libqmlwebkitexperimentalplugin.so
- the existing libqmlwebkitplugin.so

Noam said that he has no intention in maintaining this code anymore. But I 
already did some cleanups [2] and want to fix some more bugs I encountered. 
Once that it done, would there be any opposition against merging this code and 
making it the official "this is how you connect HTML/WK2 and QML2/QObject" 

Generally, do you think the approach taken by Noam is the "right" one? 
Personally, I find it very elegant and would think that many use cases of the 
old C++ API could be supported by the webchannel.
