I'm mostly concerned about widget themes and configuration. e.g. you
want the colors of window decorations to match the widget theme, you
don't want the window menu or tooltips to use gtk if you're running kde.
XSETTINGS can solve some of these things but it's easier and much more
flexible to have toolkit specific code in the window/compositing manager
for perfect desktop environment integration.
