I don't think anything that depended on both the QtCore and QtGui libraries (which are GPL unless you have a commercial license) is going into libtiff.
While I still need to actually finish the base library and then work with Martin to get the codec done, the expectation is that this would be some kind of add-in that you might provide if you particularly cared about MDI.
Is there a way to register additional codecs into libtiff at runtime?
