This state of affairs is a big loss for the free software world.
We (in the broadest sense) ought to do something about it.

Would you like to write an article describing the drawbacks of each of
the available toolkits?  Basically, the information that has come up
in this discussion, but combined and presented in one place.

In addition to the specific technical failures, it would be good to
mention for Qt the license problem and C++ requirement.  The C++
requirement may not be a disaster, but it is a drawback.
