No, I don't think that could work and it could also be impossible. If
you really want to use a GUI toolkit, then use only QT, no GGI.
But on the other hand, the point is that GUI toolkits suck for the
most games, since a real game as to run in fullscreen, window modes
just kill the atmosphere. 
If you want to write a game from scratch, just give SDL or ClanLib a
try, they will do fine.
