Sailfish is very far from being QML only.

Sailfish like all other platforms based on Qt5.X supports a rich mix  
of C++, QML and Javascript.

The exact mix is up to you, and depends on your own experience,  
preferences and predilections, and of course on what you need to do.

The death of Qt Widgets is nothing to with Sailfish, that is q Qt5.X thing.
