We're pretty close to it being possible, yes.  I don't have Qt installed
either, only have GTK1 for Evolution, Mozilla only for Galeon/Epiphany,
and don't touch any non GNOME/GTK GUI apps.  Probably the largest
inconsistency I run into at all are the GTK apps that don't support
certain very good GNOME technologies (damn GIMP and it's inability to
use gnome-vfs - erg).
