Apologies if I’m way off base here as I’m not familiar with Corinthia or
QT Editor.  If Corinthia were to  develop the web-based editor mentioned
upthread and make that the preferred/recommended editor for the project,
does that make the QT Editor optional enough for Apache?

<shameless-plug>Apache Flex is a UI Toolkit for web apps as well as
desktop and mobile apps and the community is working on a version that
outputs HTML/JS/CSS that can be consumed by Apache Cordova to target
multiple platforms.</shameless-plug>
