gtk-qt-engine is buggy and unusable with most styles.

Also when using qtcurve in Gnome, this setting supercedes any
KCM_GTK settings and you just see brocken QtCurve in KDE3,
with jumping buttons which become smaller and bigger depending on focus etc.

Also GTK-based browser shows Gnome desktop in dialogs, as I use different 
desktop folders in Gnome and KDE, this is annoying. It also uses GTK icons

Aslo it opens files in GTK applications, not in KDE players etc.
