So does Swing (today with 1.5).  But I still consider it emulation
because it isn't driving actual native widget peers -- it's drawing
them.  However you want to classify it, I'm just saying that Qt and
Swing are apples to apples with how they use the XP theme engine for
hints on drawing their own widgets.
