It's definitely going to be Haiku native or "something else" but I
would rather have that "something else" just be QT than all of those
other API's. People will try to do everything and that will just
result in a lot of half baked buggy implementations of every cross
platform API instead of one good QT implementation for those who like
cross platform apps.
