That's what Bluecurve is for. ;-)
Except I don't like bluecurve as much anymore (:
We'd love having a Nodoka theme available for KDE too, but we're
fairly busy already, so there isn't one yet. (We just didn't have the
time to work on one.) Thus Bluecurve (and Quarticurve for Qt 4) is
the best we can offer for a unified look.
I also disagree with the assertion that Plastik "looks like ass". ;-)
It just looks different (and that's the main problem we have to
solve, I think moving away from Bluecurve was a mistake).
The "look like ass" wasn't that Plastik looks bad, it just doesn't
match, therefor it makes the entire experience look like ass because

I agree our community (especially the upstream projects) needs to
work on not having to set up everything twice though. (But setting
the fonts the same way in both environments is possible, of course.)

That's because it uses a better one. ;-)
More seriously, there are solutions being worked on for the standard
dialog (especially file selector) issue at freedesktop.org
elsewhere, unfortunately nothing which got widespread adoption
But surely having to write every single application twice, once with
each toolkit, is not the real solution!

I'm not disagreeing with offering it on the DVD, in fact, I thought it
was due to comps settings. If it isn't set in comps, I'll add it to
the manifest so that it'll be there optionally.
