Because KDE colors may not look so great with some Gtk themes?

I do not believe we should endorse Geramik in any shape or form.
It is not a true match, and last I checked, it performed awfully.
Sorry to be so blunt, but as  the Keramik maintainer, I would certainly 
object to such a change to keramik's themerc. Because frankly, I don't
think it's appropriate behavior if the default KDE settings cause Gtk apps
to run quite slowly.
