Having had this conversation before in here, I believe he means exactly 
what Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum described to me as QML during dart 
league all of those years ago.

QML fully pre-compiles to Widgets.

Just a way of getting rid of .UI files that, during 4.x days had a 
history of getting corrupted. Yes, we recently had yet another instance 
of that in here where someone opened old 4.x era .UI files with 
current/recent Designer and the hidden deleted layout started kicking 
widgets that shouldn't be there into the running application.

A QML-like syntax that generated C++ source and header files for widgets 
much like happens with .UI, kicking JavaScript to the curb. You get the 
snap and feel of native binary without having to saddle an application 
with 2 VMs.
