It makes me think if KDE delivers the best possible integration of Gtk/Gnome 
apps, what is the competitive edge for developers to develop KDE applications 
any more? If you can reach both DEs with writing a Gtk/Gnome applications, 
but only one DE with Qt/KDE, you can bet what happens in the future. Think 
commercial vendors.
