Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu De kogel is door de kerk. After years of focussing entirely on Gtk+ and GNOME, Ubuntu will finally start evaluating Qt applications for inclusion in the defaukt Ubuntu installation. Mark Shuttleworth announced the policy change on his blog today.

That would mean having KDE as the default desktop instead of GNOME, thus that is absolutely of no help here.

the opposite is true as well, the default Qt build supports a theme that paints directly with the GTK engine.

I think QGtkStyle still uses Qt for painting, Gtk is used to launch system dialogs and fetch the theme attributes & bitmaps for the painter.

the Clearlooks style did that.
QGtkStyle actually uses the GTK engine.
take a look at QGtkStylePrivate and QGtkPainter classes.
does pretty wicked things but works incredibly well ;)
