I think you mean Qt.  Qt is a widget toolkit, quicktime is a (mostly
obsolete) multimedia codec and container.

And how many years are you willing to wait for that?

That is ignoring the fact that digikam would become far more complex.
 Add to that the fact that with far fewer people using it than are
using the more general KDE-provided functionality bugs will be more
common and harder to track down, and with far fewer developers bugs
will take longer to fix.
