There's no need to.  The actual drawing routines currently in mythui are quite 
heavily based on the Qt4 tech preview.  Major things I've improved are text 
rendering and the texture cache, and both of those are fairly trivial.

The rest of the architecture isn't all that well suited for a generic toolkit 
such as Qt.
