The point is not just KDE vs. GNOME, is it? Isn't BeOS doing their own port
of GIMP, using the native widget set? And I'm sure Windows users would
appreciate a more-or-less native Windows UI, too.

I don't really get your argument here. Are you saying that `KDE is wrong,
so we shouldn't integrate GIMP into it', or just `variety is the spice of
life'? Remember, we're doing this for the end users, and end users will
probably want the same UI everywhere, no matter if they've chosen KDE,
GNOME or Win32.
