We have no plans whatsoever to drop the dependency on QT, the transition to 
allow web-based configuration has nothing to do with moving away from QT.

QT is not the 'GUI' library that many people seem to think it is. It's a 
complete toolkit which allows abstraction from platform specific APIs and 
behaviour. It's what allows much of our platform independence. It's also jam 
packed full of useful classes and functions dealing with everything from 
networking, to events, to xml,  which are superbly documented. It's basically 
what the STD libs should have been.
