I never said it would be a reasonable amount of work :).

Since GNOME and KDE use the same drag and drop standard, that would be a
nice feature.

My understanding of the GPL is that you could only link to system, GPL and
LGPL libraries unless of course you were the original author of the
program.  It doesn't really matter at this point since like you said a
lot of work is needed to use Qt in xwpe.  (And if someone did the work I
suspect it would take less than a day to port it to gtk+ or gtk--.)
