I said few weeks or months ago, that our system-* tools cannot
descriminate KDE by using GTK.

I say that our tools using gtk/pygtk doesn't discriminate against KDE a
bit. If having a GTK app on KDE would be such an abomination to the
eyes, surely someone would have come up with a theme which resembles
Qt/KDE so closely nobody would notice. Or are there any interop issues
still open -- what doesn't work because these tools use GTK?


GTK is not so compatible with Qt.

What does compatibility mean here and why does that matter for the
desktop environment?


Actually, I mean KDE, because:

1) When GTK app running in KDE, KDE's icons are not displayed in that app.

2) When KDE desktop's menu enabled, GTK apps won't show their menu there.

FreeDesktop.org must work on this to provide desktop-agnostic and dbus-based menubar protocol.
Then GNOME could implement this too.
