I never tried something like that, although I intended to mix Xlib and GTK
programs. Haven't done that yet, so no experience.

However, it should be possible to have them both if each one lives in a
separate thread and has its own Display structure. You can use pipes
to pass data between threads. You could probably use one global mutex
instead, but pipes should be a bit simpler to manage.

Since GTK is the toolkit which manages top-level, I think you should
go the other way round. Create Qt widget, and use its X window id to
plug it into GTK widget using gtk_plug_new() or something like that.

Keep me informed about your progress, please.
