actually, i think, the gnome way is a little bit crappy...

i talk only about menus...

SuSE's menu, compiz config menu, and yast are just a big screen with
several icons, not really a menu. just an annoyning confusing list.
That's why the first thing i do is to change the menu from default
suse's one to the same one ubuntu use, i also mv both, yast2 control
center and yast2 sw management to QT UI that are more powerful more good
looking and much more easy to use.

just my 2 cents

Seconded, QGtkStyle could allow us to focus our resources on really
improving one YaST GUI so that it improves and fits into both
desktops rather than having two that get minimal developer love
between versions.

This seems unlikely to match the goals of those working on yast2-gtk,
first of good quality Gnome integration, and secondly of a better yast
user experience: so far, there is a certain amount of innovation there -
improved sizing, layout and rendering of eg. 'frame' widgets in a more
HIG compliant fashion, more icon goodness, the S/W manager etc.

So, your suggested approach seems unlikely to fly; would you really
even entertain the converse - a gtk+ yast2 with some theming hacks on
