Qt port

Any plans to port this app on Qt framework?

You can check my Workrave alternative - Resto (see http://just-code.org/applications/resto/ ). It's not as complex as Workave itself, but it's written entirely in Qt.

Workrave is too memory hungry for such a simple app.

Its also way too complicated. All you need is something which pops up every 20 mins to remind you to take a break.

Dont waste your time with this - try Eyedefender which is 20 times smaller and is simple to use.
