As i told in a previous email to the list, we started somewhat like that, not 
intending to be a side by side qt phat clone but playing a similar role in 
Qt. I suspect that Qt and GTK+ versions could not share so much code, but i 
agree that it is interesting to converge in aspect and behavior, mostly on 

Moving the code to phat svn could be an option but independent distribution 
would be more convenient to keep dependencies low.

Configuration is also a key aspect on the convergence. For example, I was 
thinking on a system wide configuration for the knob behavior (radial vs. 
linear) so the developer can configure the widget to use a system/user 
setting or to force one of the modes. It would be nice have this 
configuration shared among toolkits.
