QtCurve doesn't work well with GTK.

nuoveXT doesn't count. It provides many not needed icons.

And again, KDE < 4 didn't applied to FD's icon naming spec. It needed 
many symlinks (and it needs them even for cursors).

I don't think we need to join GNOME and KDE together to work on something.

Those are almost whole systems (I know, same kernel can be used), 
they're so different and other people choose GNOME, other KDE.

Most GNOME people don't want KDE's features and appearance, and vice versa.

If someone mixes them, his problem.

^ My opinion.
