What does this mean exactly? If I write an app using GNUstep, what will it look like under GNOME? Will its windows/buttons etc take on the look of the current gnome theme (such as RedHat's BlueCurve)? What about X11 themes?

I have no idea if anyone has added GNOME/KDE theme support to GNUstep, but I can tell you that there's no such thing as "X11 themes." X11 is so archaic that it doesn't even have low-level concepts like "buttons" and "menus" and "scroll bars," much less themes.

(Granted, X11 was developed *after* a number of window systems that did have such low-level concepts, but somehow the people who created it thought it this design flaw was some sort of feature.)
