Perhaps we merge Qt+newnet into a new "experimental" branch, then?

I have three major objections to merging Qt and newnet in:

1. Some of our users play trunk primarily. jaakan and those MSVC guys,
for instance. You can meet them by making a commit that breaks
compiles. :P I'm sure they'd rather dislike being unable to play an
updated version of trunk for however long it takes to fix them will be
an issue.

2. One of the forum users complained about the bugs in Qt branch
making it unplayable, and I had to reassure him that Qt branch would
not be merged into trunk until those issues were fixed.

3. I develop with Mac OS X and Windows. It is my understanding that
once they were merged in, I wouldn't be able to develop with Windows,
and I'd come up with several serious bugs in Mac OS X.

I think those mean that it's a bit early to be merging them in.
