There's different ways of doing this. I wasn't necessarily talking about a 
hard dependency for all of Qt, but more of a runtime option for the apps that 
require it.

I too would prefer if we could separate the event loop part of Glib from the 
rest, but there are more interesting battles to fight. The benefits of a 
common event loop are definitely worth some compromising. 

How much does Glib's event loop depend on the rest of Glib? Maybe  a 
separation is possible, but someone has to do it then. And fd.o is the place.
