Hehehe, yeah, that's the hard part, especially as the difference between
Qt/X11 and Qt/Win32 is mostly the drawing primitives/window creation

Bah. This is stupid. Before we start adding theming to Wine, I think
somebody should at least make an attempt at a unified theming standard.
Otherwise we're just going to end up with huge amounts of bloat and
duplication in Wine already. A standard system would be much better. No,
I don't have time for that :(
