You should note that there are a few license issues:

  * The program is GPL but uses the QT toolkit.  This means that we cannot
    legally distribute binaries of it unless the license is changed to
    "GPL with permission to link with QT" or something similar.  You'll
    have to talk with the author about that (he may not be aware of the
    problem at all).

  * Since the program depends on the non-free QT library, it'll have to go
    in contrib.
