it's not equal .... let's use fuzzy logic ...

Qt/KDE app        = .2-.3 gnome app
Qt/GNOME app
(uses some
gnomelibs, could
be harmony)       = .8 gnome app
gtk only app .... = .4-.5 gnome app
GTK/GNOME app     = 1 gnome app

it will not equal gnome apps ... and probably wouldn't make it into
the official core gnome distro, but it could be considered a gnome
app ... it will not have the exact same L&F and will not have certain
features of gtk/gnome apps, but it will cooperate well and basically
act like a gnome app ... I don't think users would mind too much ...

(don't take the above numbers too seriously :)
