Quite simply if you have an X server running and you launch an app using QT it will read the libraries and launch. Same with a GTK app.

Of course there may not be room in the ROM for both, but it's possible to install the libraries on a memory card and use a symbolic link or entry in the library path so they can be found.

Typically the argument for QT is ease of programming, there's a good IDE called KDevelop. GTK's argument typically is that it's GPL and faster.

OpenMoko should stick to what it is doing already.
