Well, unfortunately I believe that the license of QT under Windows is
not the biggest problem with running mythfrontend under Windows.

At one time, it kinda-sorta-worked, so it's not impossible, and there
has been some quiet and promising work in the background on this that
I just noticed that is listed in trac ticket 1590

See http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/1590

Coincidentally, I just today ran across a free webinar about porting
qt3 to qt4 coming up on January 9th at
