I'd be interested in reading what makes you say that. I've had difficulties 
with QML too, but sometimes have trouble putting my finger on what exactly 
the problem is. 

I think it's a general difficulty in melding the non-declarative parts of an 
application to the declarative parts. The interface between them to get 
state or information from one to the other 'world' is not always obvious. 
Some of my specific issues with it are quite particular to model-view, 
though with some additional action-related gripes.

I think it's here to stay, so it would be good to get a better handle on 
what these issues are.

All the best,
