I suppose it should be much easier to use Python's cURL bindings. 
Especially if we're talking about a command-line app. Qt is a GUI 
toolkit, not much sense in using it for a command line program.

I'd suggest looking into PycURL:

cURL does a great job in helping to write anything that does client-side 
http/https/ftp/etc., in basically any programming language (from C to 
Bash to Python).
