The next QT version (4.2, currently in RC1) contains support for the 
Glib eventloop. This has to be tested, but it promises use of the gtk 
reactor with Qt application. Qt 4.2 (and PyQt) is not released but 
should be by the time of Twisted 2.6; we could then write a 
documentation about integration. The drawback is that you'll need glib 
(ie, python-gtk) to write a Qt app.

We also have a qt4 reactor (http://twistedmatrix.com/trac/ticket/1770) 
that needs a maintener. Last time I checked few things were needed to 
make the test suite pass.
