Qt treats GTK/Gnome similar to how it treats OS X and Windows these days: it assumes the widget styles of the system. To use a Qt/KDE theme on a Gnome desktop, you actually have to jump through hoops, which I think is a very good thing.

Yes, but the problem is that Gtk+ doesn't do the same. Running Gtk+ apps on KDE is still kind of painful.

Whether GTK is or isn't inferior, there is no denying that it is faster to take advantage of native Linux features.

No, I think you have that backwards. (And what native linux features are you talking about?) Qt is the one that jumps through hoops to look like Gtk+, while Gtk+ doesn't play very nicely on a KDE desktop.
