  I don't think anyone could stop us as such - I mean, what're people
going to do, sue us? But they could say that an app which doesn't use gtk
or a gtk wrapper is not a Gnome app, which would put lots of people off.

   This is true, and I worry about it. But if it gets more C++ programmers
used to the Qt API writing apps which are gnome-compliant, it might be
worth it. And if people are running KDE apps alongside Gnome ones the
library'll be there already.

  Nope. We're putting themes into Harmony :) One minor compatibility
problem might be that Harmony and gtk won't understand the same theme
