Trolltech did some fun work to bring GTK themes into Qt at one point,
but I *highly* doubt that we will see integration like this. If it were
going to happen, it would have already.
I believe the *only* change we will see is that more companies will use
Qt instead of GTK for their GUIs. GPL projects are basically unaffected.
But that is an exciting prospect indeed. I can't wait.
My company is going to save 6 figures annually because of this change.
It'll be great.
