"Qt is a C++ library, so you have to use all of C++, if you don't, you
cannot use Qt".

Does not make sense.

That's plainly wrong as well.

C++ can very well be used as a general purpose, convenient cross-platform
programming language that can be used in a way to get raw-metal performance
_when needed_. That's not true for the alternatives you mentioned, not does
that mean that one needs that performance in each and every line of code.

At some time The Commitee decided to standardize auto_ptr, but not 
{shared,unique,...}_ptr. People calling auto_ptr unusable for most
practical purposed were chastised for not seeing the light. A while
later The Committee changed their opinion...

Not for that.
