Probably true.

Qt4, Skins and RC would be a independent, interfaces, and telnet would be 
merged with RC (yeah right... this "will" be done 2 years ago).

Reallistically, I think this would spell the death of the HTTP interface as we 
know it. How else could it view the same playlist as the main interface? 
Either it becomes Qt4 specific code, or I wonder??

It also means the end of common hotkey and DBus code. OTOH, hotkeys are rather 
easy to reimplement, and QtDbus would be nicer than what we currently have.
