I'm curious about licensing issues. I believe Qt is available under the
LGPL, however, is the LGPL compatible with the Boost License?

Other than that, I think this is a good idea, provided there's no need for a
MOC or something like that. And, Boost has a signals and slots library which
can be used already!
