Off-topic but still: yes, SMOKE does work on those platforms.

It'd be nice if these bindings were generated by SMOKE because that
would make its maintenance easier both for upstream and for you.

SMOKE does a very good job, it's faster than the official bindings
Nokia is providing (QtScript, PySide). Take a look at
http://www.kdedevelopers.org/blog/89 (and
http://www.kdedevelopers.org/node/4079 in particular).

So, why do we not use SMOKE? Den, where are you? :-P
