It is extremely technically infeasible. Make yourself a moderately
complex dialog in Glade, write code for the dialog, then try to write
the Qt by hand that will "just plug in" - I bet you can't do it.
The widgets aren't the same, they don't have the same signals or
behave the same way. libglade does not eliminate interaction with the
widgets. Also the glade files are very GTK-specific. The only way to
do this would be to write a toolkit abstraction and have a special
type of glade file that described your abstraction. But no one is
going to use a portability layer _on the same platform_ because they
won't see any advantage.
