I don't know about their numbers, but jQuery does not consider Konqueror a
target browser because its market is so small and none of the core developers
use it. Safari is, but not Konqueror. That said, I've found most stuff does
work in Konqueror just fine with a few exceptions (like those listed here).
I am biased since I use Konqueror myself at home, but a "jqinterface" module
that provided a wrapper for the jQuery Interface library would, ideally, fix
any outstanding Konqueror bugs. Those fixes would be send back upstream to
the jQuery folks. I would be surprised if they didn't accept them, unless
they broke something else.
(Note: I don't know what the licensing issues there would be with doing that,
since Drupal is GPL and jQuery/Interface is MIT/GPL. I'm just pointing out a
place where the projects could benefit from each other's slightly different

which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to
himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession
of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it." -- Thomas
