Forgive the one-time topposting, please; I'm on a phone for the moment and
phone Gmail, being different from webclient Gmail, is not friendly to my

I'm really not familiar with what Qt and GDK actually are, TBH. I believe
my understanding is correct that they are some sort of building-block type
systems (scripting languages, if I had to guess), such that WMs and DEs can
be made from Qt or GDK "parts"... but that's as far as I go.
