Of course, but in turn it wouldn't be of much use to start such a discussion if 
the goal is impossible, not feasible or simply unthinkable on the Qt end.

How many Chromium devs are also Qt devs or at least involved with QtWebEngine 
development? Can the fact that the big Chromium-based browser projects all seem 
to use GTk/Gnome be taken as an indication?

FFmpeg not that much (which is why I mentioned them, though they've been better 
behaved off late).
