I checked out the wxwindows project (a toolkit which wrapps other toolkits such as gtk+ and motif) recently and noticed on the "Ongoing Projects" that there was a wxQT-project. The description is:

"Port of wxWindows 2 to the
Qt toolkit. The idea is to
partly unify the KDE and
GNOME camps who
currently use Qt and GTK
toolkits respectively. With
wxQt and wxGTK,
developers will be able to
write for both desktops
simultaneously, plus any
other platforms supported by

To bad the status of the project is "Investigation stalled", but perhaps it could be a different approach to unify the desktops? Atleast it gives the third-party developers a chance to support both instead of having to choose one platform.
