Why not just port the GPL version of Qt to Windows?  The kde-cygwin project is doing that right
now and it isn't terribly hard (if you know the Windows API ;).  I think if some wine developers
got involved it could be accomplished very quickly as Qt is almost completely platform agnostic
... it only would require a port of 10 files or so...


BTW, I have setup a project and already started porting the build stuff to use mingw32. 
Currently, am stuck in the qfile_win.cpp and qdir_win.cpp (copies of the qfile_unix.cpp and
qdir_unix.cpp) with the general functions that abstract file creation/deletion for windows ... but
then I don't know any Windows API ;)
