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.

AFAIK, the GTK filepicker etc is not used in Mozilla. It's all done with XUL, which uses GTK as its backend toolkiit. I wouldn't have thought that using QT would make much difference in this respect, unless the idea is to not use XUL for the interface. Anyone care to explain this better than I?
