There are two problems with that.

1. I don't want C++ code in the Emacs distribution.  This isn't the sort
of crucial thing that would override that general policy.

2. Qt is licensed under GPL 3 only.  If we ever need to make a GPL
version 4, we would release the next Emacs version under GPL 4-or-later,
so it could not be linked with Qt.

You can make the changes you wish, but we should not include it in
Emacs itself.
