if someone does a theme for gtk it will nto work under harmony unless he
ports it ... so it will not have the exact same look and feel ...

first of all it will have to play catch up with gnome for gtk ... so
gnome for harmony will be a little behind, second ... if some feature is
gtk specific it might not be all that easy to do it in harmony .. for
example I was wondering how you could write a panel applet in harmony
... the panel applet has to use gtkplug .. though I guess you could
write a harmony plaug that made gtksocket feel like it was gtkplug there
... I doubt harmony will have 100% the feature set of gnome at any given

it still seems like a large code duplication though ... compared to
doing it all as gtk wrappers ... since all of libgnomeui and theme code
and some custom widgets will have to be ported/rewritten for harmony
