To repeat myself from previous discussions here: 
Be careful, do not overdue in this direction. Some say this is part of the 
famous approach OS/2 took, embracing W*ndows, thus having all people to 
develop for W*ndows as this way their programs would run on both platforms. 
Newer W*ndows features naturally appeared first, you guess, in W*ndows, so 
OS/2 was quickly behind. The end of the story is known.

You do want to get people to code for KDE, don't you? So think more about how 
KDE apps can run on more platforms, not so much the other way round. Konqui 
rules more than F*refox, doesn't it?
