they're normally not nice for libraries as they make language bindings
very difficult. sure apps belong there, but anything that's exposing an
api for the world to use should be written in something low level enough
that it can (relatively) easily be bound to any language you choose.
which basically leaves you with C.

which so far as i'm concerned is (one of) the major thing(s) that gtk+
has going for it over kde.
