If you're not in the Plasma desktop, you should get the dialogs from the 
desktop you're in. For example, if you're in GNOME, the GTK style plugin 
should get the GTK dialogs.

The only left-over is for a Qt 5 app on a KDE 4 desktop. In that case, I'd 
argue that the Plasma plugin should be loaded, but it needs to be installed
