I'm not religious; and it would be quite easy to have Qt as a back-end.

Bear in mind that this is supposed to be a well-designed API that wraps
*existing* implementations like GTK and Qt.

The fact that Qt is written in C++ and GTK is written in C has absolutely
no bearing. Implementation detail.

And, just for the record, I think the (C) GTK API is better-designed than
the (C++) Qt API :^). That's why my personal choice was to implement GTK
