About QT specifically something came up. There is a tool to translate the
(IIRC IDL) abstract prototypes to plain C.

This could be adapted to generate (Object or plain) Pascal headers too.

The tool is in Perl though, and all FPC developpers don't like to touch
that, so no core-developper worked on that yet.
