Gentoo offers both, and looking at metadata in bugs reported to us, it
appears that both of them are used by a significant fraction of users
(in spite of GTK+ being the build option preferred by our ebuilds).

Also, GTK+ (in version 2 or 3) still crashes for multi-tty Emacs,
due to bug 85715 <https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=85715>.
Given that this has been reported 14 years ago, my guess is that it
will never be fixed.

Has anyone tried porting Emacs to Qt? :)
