Not at all. I haven't made any formal performance comparisons but you
can't notice any difference between a Qt C# app and a QtJambi app
(time to load, speed, responsiveness, and even memory consumption,
this is talking about Microsoft's .NET; mono still has some unresolved
issues throwing exceptions that make it slower). But since you
mentioned it I should make some formal tests comparing between them
and see how "ineffective" this approach is. Regardless of it the
simple fact that you can get .NET bindings for the whole Qt 4 stack in
5 minutes I think is a huge plus in "effectiveness".

I know. I know.. So many years calling it Trolltech it is just an
automatic thing for me to call it Trolltech's Qt4
