Let's face it, a Qt app isn't so very different from a Python or Perl app: it simply extends what the base technology already has to offer (and yes I'm aware that Qt is a library and not a runtime environment).

This is incorrect. `py-foo` and `p5-foo` are only used for Python and Perl modules that can be imported and used by other programs. Applications that are merely written in Python and Perl (e.g., `trac`, `ack`) should NOT have a prefix.
