Qt is so old-fashioned MeeGo - HTML5 rulez in Tizen! >:->

Thanks for keeping this in mind. I thing it is just good engineering and
will hopefully also turn out to be useful outside of Tizen, which - just
to avoid any confusion - does not use EDS at the moment and might never
do. I'm bringing it up as an example of a distro where compiling EDS is
hard at the moment because of the GTK dependency - there might be other,
similiary limited platforms.
