What they basicaly did was reimplement the Quick elements they were 
using, if I understood it right from an earlier time I read that blog, 
and then solve all kinds of issues with rendering that were already 
solved inside Qt itself... So, it comes down to implementing the 
elements of Quick 1 on your own again for the elements you need, or 
something close to it. It is what I called "major work" in my first 
reply. And indeed: I guess doing this requires heavy use of private API. 
So far, QML and Quick are not all that friendly for C++-side extensions...

I read about an effort of a different rendering backend for Quick a 
while ago done by Digia at that time that sounded like it could work to 
solve the issue, but that was not freely available to take a look at so 
I don't know for sure it would fit the use case.
