what matters IMHO would be (in random order):

what are the performance implications?
	memory usage?
	start speed?
	runtime speed?

would trolltech be interested in adjusting the event loop in this way? 
(otherwise, why bother?)

is this cross platform? it seems from a glance at the patch that the answer is 
'no', meaning that this would be UNIX (and, furthermore, X11 due to calls 
like XPending) specific and not have the same properties on other platforms. 
which then begs the question: is that desirable?

is it binary compatible? e.g. can a binary built against a glib-event-loop qt 
run against a vanilla qt and vice versa? looking at the patch it seems so, 
but figured i should ask anyways.

will this work as well with Qt4 as it is with Qt3? (otherwise, why bother?) 
this includes being able to support all the event loop related features in 
Qt4 (important for things like thread-specific event loops).
