Thats not really true. CLX is totally tied to QT, down to a fairly low level.
They could re-write it to use GTK, but why do they need to?

Not really - it's buit into QT, so it's transparrent. It's QT that does all the
theme-ing, which you actually originally mentiond as a plus point for GTK!!!

QT is very portable. The difference is the cost alone.
