At the event loop level, neither GTK nor Qt is a GUI toolkit.  That
is, GTK's event loop is found in glib rather than GTK itself; Qt's
event loop (whether native or using glib) is also below the GUI
toolkit level, available for use by event-driven applications that
neither use X11 nor link against any of Qt's GUI code.
