Would switching to Qt be a good idea?

I believe you misunderstood me.
I was referring specifically to examples you provided. The only thing
they demonstrate is that in GTK+ a window must be created explicitly
whereas in Qt it is created implicitly.
I am not too familiar with GTK, but I know Qt internals fairly well
and can say that Qt is kind of messy. So I don't think rewriting XFCE
in Qt is worth it. That entails a complete rewrite which means we'll
just get yet another DE.

I understand from experience that silly mistakes can make someone dislike a library or even entire programming language, but it doesn't mean that that library/language is bad.
