I think there's a terminology problem here, that probably causes some 
confusion. E17 is not the name of the interface. It is the name of the 
libraries used to build the interface. The standard home interface on SHR, 
which uses E17, is called Illume, I believe.

Thus, what I think you mean, is that while E17 may have faster code than Qt, 
*Illume* (the interface) is not written better than the Qt-based interface, 
because it uses too many of the features (such as the earlier mentioned 
transparency), instead of being well adapted to the FR (to be responsive).
