The port to Windows .NET of the scrolledwindow and scrolledview widgets took more effort than I had originally thought that it would (the patch file for the changes was well over 1000 lines when completed).

Trixul is a cool idea. is there any possibility that there will or could be a qt port?

Yes, Qt is a very real possibility. The reason for this is the clean separation between platform implementations. Currently, I support Cocoa on MacOS X, Gtk+ on Linux, and .NET forms on Windows. Qt would simply be another factory implementation that could be instantiated on all three platforms (due to its cross-platform nature).

There might be some difficulties due to how Qt is built, but that could be isolated to the platform Makefile I suspect).

Not only can you port to Qt (or Motif, or wxWidgets for that matter), Trixul should be very portable to other platforms that provide a native toolkit similar to those already supported, and support C++. I am compiler-agnostic for the most-part, Mac and Linux are built with GCC, while Windows is built using Visual Studio .NET (from the command line).
