This is really good! Thanks for the huge work :)
This is one more milestone reached toward version 1.0
I have more or less finished the QT-ization process.
All the other data file reading routines have been re-written to use QT
routines and I've added comment handling to many of the data files. All
explicitly use UTF-8 format now (although I think it only makes a
difference for the scientific star names file, which has Greek characters).
