Well, it should be simple. libcoin separates all the stuff you would like to do from a gui from the actual code, so I think it could be done cleanly. I havn't looked much at qt though... But help would be appreciated ;)

> libcoin also maintains a version of bitcoind that is a 100% compatible drop-in replacement of the bitcoin/bitcoind client: You can use it on the same computer on the same files and you can call it with the same scripts. And you can easily extend it without touching the basic bitcoin source files.

> In libcoin, the Satoshi client code has been completely refactored, properly encapsulating classes, removing all globals, moving from threads and mutexes to a pure asynchronous approach. Functionalities have been divided into logical units and libraries, minimizing dependencies for e.g. thin clients.
> libcoin is chain agnostic, all chain (bitcoin, testnet, namecoin, litecoin, ...) specific settings are maintained from a single class (Chain) and hence experiments with chain settings, mining, security and digital currencies for research and educational purposes are easily accessible. See the ponzicoin example for how you define your own chain.
