[Bug 285400] Re: gtk-qt-engine does not load, GTK apps themed as default

The package doesn't work without those dependencies, so what's the point
in shipping it at all? It only offers an option in system settings which
won't do anything (and will therefore confuse users--I notice one
duplicate bug already).

Surely, if it doesn't fit on the CD, leave it off, remake the
dependency, and get users to install it (at least it's the logical thing
to install to get Qt styles in GTK). For the best experience, perhaps
provide the panel in system settings with a note saying something like
"to use KDE styles in GTK applications, install the gtk-qt-engine
package (click here to do it now)"

Firefox doesn't bring in libbonobo, neither does pidgin.
