- Virtual Treeview is supported AFAIK.
- Jedi code library is very tied to Windows (and Delphi, for that matter).
Much of the code will probably work (on Windows) but I'd expect a rough transition.
- Quickreport can be replaced with Lazreport, or even FastReport when using Qt.
But I would not spend time trying to convince people who are not willing to
use a different toolset (cfr. "Key familiar libraries"). It is an unthankful
