I don't know who wrote up that idea. I'd find it much more useful to  
make Qt apps work nicely in Sugar, rather than having to recode each  
in GTK.

If you intend to write a new activity in Python, then GTK is the  
obvious choice, because there is a toolkit supporting that development  
style. Otherwise you can choose freely - as long as your preferred  
programming environment supports X11 and can talk to DBus, you can  
create Sugar activities in it:
