This is what we've been told by the people we talked to. MeeGo 1.0 for
handsets uses a new compositor, with a new set of hints. Those are not
compatible with existing desktop implementations.
Trying to use a stock GTK+ or Qt application on MeeGo 1.0 for handsets
will result in a black screen.
Do you have any other information that contradicts that?

The first step would be fixing the compositor and/or adding support for
this new compositor in GTK+ itself.
The second would be to start porting some of the Maemo 5 GTK+ and Hildon
features to GTK+.
