There is no OpenGL *requirement*. It will certainly made in a way that allows
extensive OpenGL optimizations (esp with Wayland and similar solutions in
mind). Lighthouse IIRC already has a VNC plugin, XCB (which you can tunnel),
this kind of shows you that remote connections are by no means in danger, the
only question is their speed - Qt's focus is AIUI not on that ATM, so more of
a 'we take patches' level.

Can you be more specific ? What do you mean under QML scene assembly ? If you
are trying to dynamically generate QML, you're sorta doing it wrong - it only
sounds like you're trying to put stuff in QML that shouldn't be there (or that
way) in the first place.

I used Python+QML in a couple of experiments - my personal opinion is it's
way, way easier to work with QML (esp if you're willing to build your
components - until Nokia makes a stable release) than it ever was with QWidget
stuff. I would say this is a question of way of thinking - you're not writing
*part of the app*, you're writing the UI.
