Yes, that is the biggest weakness of Qt. Yet a GUI Libary needs many things
that are not the interface and basic handling of the objects. Since Qt is
widely used and very popular, especially for platform independent
applications, I would recommend to look there for any solutions before trying
to reinvent every wheel around.
Even when looking at the interfaces, wherever there is no conflict with
Standard C++, I think it is a good idea to make it as similar as possible to
the stuff people already know and like, and that is mostly Qt.
I can't tell if i would enjoy using nana, because I would have to have written
an application with it before I know. I mostly do enjoy working with Qt and
KDE, but I'd prefer to have them more standard C++ like. Sometimes that simply

That is a very good Idea. Also I like that you use RAII to manage widget
