Well it wouldn't be the first unmaintained batch of code added to
QEMU... Slirp is the example that comes to mind. In fact I think the
QEMU developers are the de facto maintainers of the Slirp codebase.

So I think we should either just use GTK, or make Qemu ready for
integration of C++ GUI code (and use one of the common GUI toolkits), or

It seems pretty clear that C++ is a non-starter.

add an interface for external GUIs (and run the GUI as an external
process, written in Python or Perl or the like).

This is already possible via command line options and accessing the
monitor via perl expect or python expect. Of course an API would be
easier to use and less likely to break. I'd certainly prefer an
out-of-process GUI to admitting C++.

I'm not sure what the issue is with just using GTK. That's what the
nonpareil HP calculator emulator uses for the same reason: Eric
dislikes C++.
