[Qgis-developer] Mac OS X vertex limitation

There's a note in the Mac Qgis readme about the Mac build being  
limited in the number of vertices per polygon due to a QuickTime  
limitation (actually that's a QuickDraw limitation) as used in Qt.   
Is this still valid?

I looked at the Qt docs for QPainter and Qt4 should be able to use  
OSX's CoreGraphics now.  Unless maybe Qgis is still using a Qt3  
compatibility thing and stuck on the QuickDraw method?  Though I'm  
not sure if CoreGraphics has removed that vertex limitation or not  
(one would think so).
