This is a really cool idea! However, I would like to see a uxthemeqt too
as I use KDE and it will fit a bit better.

Have you tried a Gtk+ app for Windows using this code? It seems a bit
strange it would be 'double-rendered' and it even seems prone to error
in that case, especially since such an app may have exceptions for the
Windows build.
