If you really aren't locked into one DE, and if you are switching from gnome to QT sounds like you aren't, you should consider just making your app in HTML5 using a webkit widget and exposing the os features you need via javascript, ala phonegap.

Your app will look nice, be faster (really) and be 10x more portable.

Have you used a web browser in the last few years? Give me a break. It is crazy how slow to load and respond many simple desktop apps are. Unless you are doing something very graphically intense (like a game) you can get 100% adequate performance with way less effort using html5. It will definitely be faster to load and use less memory than a gtk app.
