gtk-qt-engine project abandoned

Bug Description

The wonderful gtk-qt-engine had been abandoned by it's lone developer. He recently moved all bugs to Google Code to remove it from his university's server where it had been hosted until now. The dev has expressed interest in incorporating patches that are provided to him, however, he will not fix bugs himself.

Therefore, the usual approach of waiting for upstream will not help resolve bugs in the case of gtk-qt-engine. Either the Ubuntu community must send the patches upstream ourselves, or bugs filed against gtk-qt-engine should be closed as abandoned.

We have opted to remove the package, as sadly nobody has time to maintain it. :(
Fortunately, we saved at least the System Settings module, as I do have time to maintain that. :)
