For what it is worth, there is work going on to port Qt/X11 to native windows 
under the GPL.  This would make Qt# a nearly cross-platform toolkit when 
ready (GNU/Linux, FreeBSD, Windows and Qtopia/Zaurus - MacOSX).  Regarding 
the PDF idea I would love to work with you to create a Qt# widget that would 
display this!  Very cool idea James ;)
