Yes.  In fact, the frontend works on Windows. ;)
My first foray was "qtpov", a Qt gui that launched a custom povray that
used websockets instead of a command line. That ran on Windows and
Linux.  That gui is the qtpovray frontend.

My problem is with building povray with qmake (Qt's ./configure
replacement).  It all works great on Linux, but, on Windows, I have a
problem with a master project that has two library subprojects plus an
executable subproject.  (It tries to build the second library skipping
the "compile the source" bits, thus tipping over because the .obj files
don't exist).  I'll get to it at some point.

My Windows experience these days is limited to a 1024x768 window in my
Linux desktop.  VS2015 and QtCreator are pretty laughable at that size.
Ain't nobody wanna deal with that.
