I believe Qt is the best GUI toolkit currently available for any

You seem to misunderstand how EQL works. While "EQL the executable" is
indeed ECL with Qt functionality, "EQL the project" does not contain or
modify ECL sources. First compile ECL, then use it to compile EQL.
Given that EQL uses a fairly straightforward, fully self-contained
technique to generate the bindings, I actually think it has better
long-term viability than CommonQt. KDE's Smoke is a fairly complex
framework; it would be much harder to maintain if KDE switches to "the
next big thing" again.
