Wow, my first deb actually works for other people!

Using GtkQt (as mentioned in my original email), the selection of QtCurve for
Gtk would have been automatic.

The only thing that I noticed, is that (by default) the Gtk file dialogs do
not seem to respect the "gtk-alternative-button-order" (the one that switches
Cancel/OK -> OK/Cancel) But oddly enough, the "Open Location" (control-L) in
the file chooser does!
Yeah OO.o is not very good KDE wise. The menu's aren't drawn correctly - in
whatever theme, apart from Plastik (this seems hard-codded). Also, the
file-selector appears as a top-level window that can be minimised separately
from the main window - which is blocked waiting on the file selector!

Thank you, glad you liked it!

Well I will try to get it into dapper - I've made some changes to the style,
and just want to play with it for a few days before updating.
