Wow, this really sounds much better than my approach, I didn't know 
the Smoke interface.

For a really serious usage of all the Qt features, one must always use a 
really object-oriented approach (although I don't like object-orientation 
very much, I never use it except for GUI stuff, so I don't know anything 
about CLOS).

This would be nice, I really wondered if I where the only one of all the 
Lisp users out there interested in a Qt integration! (With Qt4 it is much 
more consistent than with the older versions.)

So I would like to contribute something to this interesting topic, but as 
mentioned above I'm not really an OO disciple, and I would have to learn 
CLOS first...

Anyway, very nice to hear that I'm not the only one interested in this 
promising cross platform GUI topic.
