Subject: JtR GUI: Qt and WxWidgets native look'n'feel in GNOME and KDE

Looking through screenshots of JtR GUIs on the wiki it was noted that on
different systems with gnome applications using WxWidgets could look
differently because these systems use different theme engines and

It gave birth to the question: does Qt support GNOME themes and
settings? And to the opposite question: does WxWidgets support KDE
themes and settings?

I searched internet about it and found that for Qt there is QGtkStyle
that renders Qt applications through GTK so it should support GNOME

For WxWidgets there are more information about native look'n'feel under
KDE. I found two ways: wxQt that uses Qt as a system library for
WxWidgets and GTK-QT that is GTK theme that looks native for KDE. GTK-QT
uses Qt widgets to determine how it should render its own widgets. So
both wxQt and GTK-QT should look good. But some reviews say that they
both work bad.

It seems that some more investigation is needed. Does someone have any
experience with the questions?
