As far as I see, the Qt module is evolving without much care for anything 
except the Qt GUI on Windows. And I presume that even Windows is afflicted by 
the UX regressions reported on Trac by François, and performance issues.

There are no plans. This is not waterfall. If you continue maintaining it, or 
if somebody else takes over, then it will be there. Otherwise, it will bit-rot 
and, at some point, get removed.

I don't know, but presumably not.
