No, I think just using one of the two most popular toolkits (Gtk or 
Qt) is enough.  Both of those have Windows bindings and at least Qt 
has a native (non-X) Mac binding as well.  And since they receive the 
most developer focus of the various toolkits, they set an 
appearance/usability standard that other toolkits (like wx, fltk, 
motif, tk, etc.) often can't match, even when (like wx) they use Gtk 
as a back end on Linux hosts.  I suspect an Audacity built against a 
more recent wxWidgets would look nicer, though.

In this case, Lee is really talking about the lack of anti-aliasing on 
the fonts, though I could easily imagine other GNOME or KDE users 
complaining that these apps that use less common toolkits don't abide 
by their choice of desktop theme.

Anyway, at least wx-based apps aren't openly modern-desktop-hostile 
like, say, cinelerra or snd.
