I think starting yet another desktop project is a complete waste of
time.  There are just too many of them.

What I would do is port KDE over to Gtk as quickly as possible, plain
and beautiful C only.  Then I would show that work to the KDE people.

I think you can use a lot of code from the existing KDE widgets.

If someone is going to do this, I think it should be as fast as
possible.  KDE/Qt/C++ is getting big and the code is settling down, so
the sooner a Gtk version is available, the better.
