What is ``dynamic widget manipulation''? And how would a dynamic model
of programming be diferent from the one used by Qt4?

Well, the nice thing about Qt 4 is that they have extended the
"meta-object" protocol:
you can modify most widget properties by name, that is: you have a
string designating
the property (say, background color) and can set it through a single
generic interface.

Another feature is that it can create widgets at runtime from an XML
spec and there is
a very nice GUI designer that generates that XML. As usual everything
is extensively

Still, it's big, slow and a bit proprietary. Powerful, though.
