There are currently all sorts of problems, including distro versions lagging behind released versions
Even Jessie still uses Qt4 if you choose to install qt-sdk. You can install Qt5, but that is extra dependencies that others will not have
(or want, if they are using an SD image on a tiny ARM board)
Qt5.5 and greater broke Alex's QtQuickVcp, I don't know if that is fixed in later versions, I still use 5.4
Qt5 broke and dropped QtXEmbedContainer, so programs that worked quite happily, embedding say the gremlin widget in Qt4.xx, no longer work.
Qt5 no longer works on some window managers, like icewm (these 2 may be linked to its implementation of the X standard)
My advice would be to overcome your quite natural antipathy for python and gtk (yughh) and use the existing pncconf as a template to achieve functionality initially.
Then look at a modern interface in Qt, as an eventual replacement.
In time hopefully ALL the tk/tcl stuff will be replaced with something far less offensive :)
