  • They really could fix lots of these theme problems, this isn't a new thing

    I just don't understand why couldn't make a wrapper interface like XCB did for Xlib, then very few would hate it and switch to QT in frustration. Then the projects could slowly re-implement things in the more modern API, and get the benefits provided by that change. In addition such a wrapper would by definition theme GTK2 with the GTK3 engines and respective GTK3 themes. They are very much responsible for the degradation of visual integration, and this is from a GTK supporter, and generally C++ avoider. I understand the ideological reasons for forcing that change immediately, but it's bad policy in the GPL community considering we don't often have the resources of commercial projects.
