The newer aqbanking5/gwenhywfar4 combination has many new features and new 
supported banks and (the best of all) it gets rid of Qt. However, it requires 
gtk >= 2.18. We cannot use gtk-2.18 due to some known bugs with the gtk theme 
on windows (or something like that), so we are stuck to 2.16. This means we 
cannot use the newest aqbanking/gwenhywfar and get rid of qt unless we upgrade 
to 2.20.

Also, 2.16 is now almost two years old and I was expecting some significant 
improvements in terms of windows GUI performance and such, but that's just a 
lesser priority.
