speaking as the principle mentor on the relevant GSOC project (Ian is also
co monetoring, so he can correct me if i'm wrong anywhere)
The QT binding project is a *subproject* of the *gsoc project* whose
principal focus for the summer is making a swig + fficxx based C++ ffi
wrapper for haskell. the GSOC core project is moving apace, and will likely
be usable by the close of the summer. realistically, the QT bit is gold
plating / a nontrivial demo use case. Currently its unclear if we'll have
time to get the QT ball rolling, but a lot of the support tooling for that
subproject should be done by the close of the summer!
