Someone once came up with it, ever since it is used as common excuse for 
shipping broken stuff. Also, I'd like to note that qt-only can, and usually 
does, mean as alien as GTK+ (I don't think Arora is using kwallet, kcookiejar, 
kjava, kbookmarks...), so the only benefit Qt apps got over GTK+ apps for us is 
that we already have the Qt stack on board but GTK+ would require additional 
space, other than that it is mostly the same insanity.

Note: I wrote that it usually means alien because it is not always the case 
(Quassel integrates quite nicely, though it does have KDE bindings, so...), 
also I just used Arora as example because even though a web browser is just a 
chrome it can (should?) integrate into KDE at multiple levels.
