Mostly that there would be no point, as it doesn't offer any significant
advantages over GTK, and has some clear problems -- notably it's a C++
toolkit (I personally like C++, but Emacs is not a C++ app).

[I also have some personal gripes about qt4, e.g., it screws up font
rendering in some cases if you have a ~/.fonts.conf file, but things
like that are presumably bugs, and could theoretically be fixed.]
