Sadly it's the only true cross-platform toolkit now.

Huh? What about Qt? What disqualifies it? I write *true* cross-platform code with Qt professionally. It's what I do. Currently I'm porting a client's ancient MFC-4.0 code to WinXP, Mac OSX, Linux and multiple flavors of Unix. On each platform the appropriate *native* low level libraries are used. Heck, in 4.2 dialog buttons even get reordered according to platform!

How is this not "true cross-platform"?

While you may have a personal dislike for Qt, and find it doesn't meet your project's needs, you cannot argue that it is not true cross-platform. Because it is.
