I realize the advantage of having a full blown qt impementation to run  
qt-apps in maemo, Bu wouldn't this be doing something that has allready  
been done before; Porting qt to handheld devices? Is it possible to uuse  
qtopia somehow? maybe run qtopia apps ontop of maemo? Is there anything we  
can use from the qtopia project?
