Can I predict that you run Gnome as your main desktop? I've noticed
that this sort of attitude seems to come from Gnome-centric people who
feel that having anything Qt-related on their system is a corruption
of FLOSS, and ignore anyone who tries to run both at the same time.

Is not a corruption of FLOSS, is a break of the visual consistency, an
unneeded waste of resources (have in RAM the supporting libraries for
both toolkits) and and an awful increase in the startup speed of the
apps using the *other* toolkit.

Not only the resources, Nicu.

Think about Martin's Sourada and others work - they're doing what they can to make Echo both-compatible.

@Kelly: tell me, why XFCE can use GNOME's icon themes with success and KDE cannot?
