Yes I agree the setup is sub-optimal. Unfortunately I have no time to tinke=
with it. I've CC'ed this to Christoph, so if he has time it might happen.
Similarly with the compatibility layer question - I've no intention at this
stage to change to native qt4 (no time I'm afraid), but I'd be very happy i=
someone else does.
