I suggest an idea. I know that Qt4 offer some facility to export
objects trough DBus [1]. So one can write a small C++ application that
allow other applications to create Qt objects and export them, then
use Qt in ocaml via DBus.

Here are the advantages i see:

- the C++ code and the ocaml code would run in different processes, so
  we do not have to care about all the C++isms of Qt in the ocaml

- this would make Qt available to any languages that have DBus.
  For ocaml i am currently writing a pure ocaml DBus implementation [2].
