That may be true in some cases, but in fact, most widgets show some sort 
of difference. Take for example the HPaned - it looks totally different 
(the slider is a lot slimmer, plus moving it makes a line appear. The 
behavior is different as well).

Even simple widgets show differences. Try triple-clicking into entry 
boxes, it's different from Gtk.

Obviously, it does *not* always use Gtk.

Same as above.
