Embed Qt window in Win32 C++/Delphi non-Qt app

- Why the goal: got a legacy app, main form with several dockable/undockable child windows, want to display web content in those child windows, don't want to use IE ActiveX for that.
- Why QT: as far as I was able find out to this point, Qt is the only east-to-learn (actually out-of-the-box) solution for displaying HTML via WebKit. Make Qt window, place web browser widget there, that's all, something like that.
- Now the question is how to properly embed Qt window into a native one. If it's possible at all. I mean, of course it's possible to retrieve a window handle from Qt window and change it's parent hwnd, but it might be that Qt window requires a specific message pump. Also I can try to run Qt window in a separate thread (if Qt allows that) and have its parent window run in another Win32 thread, so that each thread can have its own message pump; but since the windows message queue will be shared, might be those message pumps are incompatible. Any chance someone knows how to do what I want?
