Ok, all that text and....
In short, your expectation is that we can get together and write some
code in PyQt which can be used for Belenix apps as welll as (possibly)
ported to KDE on Solaris.
Fine. Simple thoughts written in a long winded fashion.
Btw, I thought Konqueror was ZFS aware, so my question is it it
possible to do this entirely using a PyQT based layer which understands
both ZFS and can talk to the KDE/Kparts layer ?
