Hi all, hi Sven,

This is a second set of Qt peers, this one coming from GNU Classpath. 
Contrary to Kaffe's original Qt peers, that work with Qt2/3/Embedded, 
this particular implementation uses the latest release of Qt libraries, 
Qt4. Most distributions do not ship it yet (and probably will start 
shipping in ~6-9 months when KDE 4 arrives). It is pretty intersting 
nevertheless, as Qt4 is a very nice GUI toolkit, and is now available 
under the GPL on all major desktop platforms.

The peers were written by Sven de Marothy, and were checked in into GNU 
Classpath's CVS a few days ago. I've added the build machinery to 
support bulding them on Kaffe, and will be porting that build machinery 
over to GNU Classpath later today, so that other runtimes can easily use 
them, as well.

They do not work yet on GNU Classpath (and Kaffe) due to some 
Gtk-specfuc implementation details in GNU Classpath's AWT 
implementation.[1] Help on improving the GNU Classpath AWT 
implementation is heartily welcome and appreciated.

Kaffe CVS head ;)
