Install Qt on Windows Subsystem for Linux?

With the recent Windows 10 Anniversary Update, I am able to get Windows Subsystem for Linux working and with Xming, GUI apps like Firefox are working too.
I'd like to have Qt Creator running in the same setup so I can build Linux apps without a VM. Before I start I just want to know if anyone already has any experience with it, or foresees any issues.
Someone got Ubuntu Unity running. See here.
However, I am not aware of any specific Qt build for the WSFL.

In my tests, you cannot call a linux executable from Win32, and vice-versa. The subsystem is like another machine.
You can use the QtCreator from the subsystem (you can install via installer for Linux);
Or you can use the QtCreator on windows and use the subsystem to compile (via /mnt/c/......).

So, it seems it's broken a bit past that. shm allocation fails:
 Warning: QXcbShmImage: shmget() failed (38: Function not implemented) for size 326000 (500x163)
bilking@4DEDBILKING2:~$  Warning: Cannot get any query output from executable: '/home/bilking/Qt/5.8/gcc_64/bin/qmake'
bilking@4DEDBILKING2:~$  Warning: QProcess: Destroyed while process ("/home/bilking/Qt/5.8/gcc_64/bin/qmake") is still running.
Hand testing qmake, it seems to run fine, so I'm not sure where the QProcess is failing.
