When we started QT was object based. That ment that every call had to be 
wrapped by a piece of C code to get a flat function call. I heard rumors 
(but don't know if they are true) that FPC could link against C++ objects 
so that the wrapper wasn't needed.
If FCP would support this, it would be in the 1.1 or later versions.
Unless the qt3 libs contain flat apicalls (which I don't expect) we still 
need the wrapper.
