I did not mean temporary. It's permanent as long as the developers of this 
platform theme plugin do not decide to submit their code to Qt. It's their 
project, they can do whatever they want with it. Now, I don't know if anyone 
has ever asked them. I, for one, didn't know it existed until a few hours ago.

I don't think Qt developers should redevelop it from scratch. That wouldn't be 
a good use of our time, plus the Fedora developers are actually knowledgeable 
about Gtk, unlike us.

If the plugin is installed system-wide, any Qt should be able to load it, even 
the official binary packages (provided the plugin can be somehow found).

This applies to the KDE platform theme plugin too.
