Qt Toolkit Support Likely to be Dropped from Mozilla

Update! A page describing the current efforts to get the Qt port back to a working state has been posted.

The idea is to use the QT toolkit instead of the GTK one (that's the one the mozilla.org Linux nightlies use).

This would allow better intergration with KDE (in the QT port), including support for the current KDE theme when using the Classic theme, reuse of various QT components (QPrinter), use of the native QT filepicker (like other KDE apps) if desired, and so forth.
