The best way is to develop GUI-independent backends that can be used
by frontends written in Qt, GTK+, or even ncurses. This approach is
taken by (K)NetworkManager, HAL/Solid, (K)Ubuntu's Ubiquity installer,
Guidance (yes - a PyGTK frontend is on the way) and could very well
work for Anaconda and other Fedora-specific tools. This way the core
functionality is shared, while the users have the GUI of their choice.
There are clear benefits to using apps made with the same toolkit as
your desktop: less memory used, less disk space used, faster start up
time.

If KDE is going to be supported by Fedora, it might as well be done
right.

It is not worth the effort for Anaconda and many other tools. There are other KDE focussed distributions which have used GTK based tools like Mandriva. Nothing wrong with that.

If you disagree put in the effort.
