Oh, I must have been confused. I thought they were talking about
integration with Unity3D (the games engine).
Is that not possible?

Systray and menu bar integration.

Unity installs a plugin for Qt (platformtheme plugin) that redirects some of
the X11 calls into those specific to Unity. Though I think the systray
(notification) integration is now moved into Qt's own XCB plugin, with no
need for the platformtheme plugin to do it.
I also think Ubuntu carries patches to Qt that redirect some of the
functionality. Those patches have been responsible for breaking some Qt
applications -- for example, some were shown with no menu bar, either inside
the window or Mac-style in the top bar.
