[SailfishDevel] Use of other aspects of Qt

Hi everyone,

I have been playing with the demos and was wondering am I only allowed 
to use QML?

I am most familiar with using Qt classes directly and I don't see the UI 
editor so
I am guessing that it is not available for use with Sailfish.  Sure I 
can learn QML
but I'd rather use tools I already have experience with to save time.

What I am trying to work on is an embedded linux app, using Qt, that is 
fast to boot
and runs only one app, mine.  I am wanting to retrofit a classic car I 
have with
modern technology but I need the software/hardware to be operational as 
quick as
possible.  How many folks would tolerate if your gauges became 
operational after 19
seconds.  Sure I can use sleep mode but I saw a demo on YT from 
Linutronix which
used a Linux based OS with Qt and booted under 2 seconds.  They ran the 
mice demo.  This was back in 2011 and after 3 years the processors have 
faster so I am hopeful. I couldn't get support help from Linutronix and 
I don't
read German so I had to abandon that idea.
