One wouldn't have to redevelop a Qt port from scratch. The question is
whether it's cheaper to fix Qt build breakages as soon as it occurs on
mozilla-central, or postpone fixing it until someone wants to ship a
Qt-based product (weighted by the probability of that ever happening).
I don't know the answer, but I find the latter at least plausible.
“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’
But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,
that you may be children of your Father in heaven. ... If you love those
who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors
doing that? And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more
than others?" [Matthew 5:43-47]
