it's not a pretty strategy but it's a pragmatic one.  i personally wouldn't
mind this, because getting pyqt setup is not that hard.  one potential
problem is that the main log window calls many other windows as sub-windows.
 if it's a simple subprocess, then it would be fairly easy to make it a Qt
window.  if not and it's using a bunch of gtk window management stuff (which
is probably the case) it'll be a lot harder to have the two co-exist.
