Lubuntu 14.10 and after

We don't know yet. We have to decline using GTK libraries with time,
because we cannot keep two widget sets in a single ISO. Also, the only way
to get a desktop homogeneous is to keep all the widgets calling for the
same graphics.

Look, right now we're using gtk3, gtk2, tk, plainX and qt. It doesn't make
any sense, right? Also, gtk4 is coming too aside gtk3. Imagine the chaos
its coming to some Linux desktops. Ubuntu is going to that technology (qt5)
and Lubuntu is using its core and apps. It's logical to improve, not to
make our systems a mess (and not talking about the hell it will be for us,
the designers).

The app polling will be in a few time. The community will vote and we'll
evolve as expected ;)
