Your task

Qt is the next generation of an incredibly powerful crossplatform library! It enables us to easily ship to multiple desktop platforms, writing the code only once. SDL is another awesome crossplatform library, more suited for media and graphics than GUI and powers our game entirely.

Hedgewars has been on Googlecode for quite some time and a lot of people have cloned its sourcecode. Maybe some people did something nice that we can fully integrate in our code. Are you able to explore Hedgewars' clones and point out the interesting stuff?
