Not all apps are either GTK or Qt. Some are dockapps, meant to be used
with window managers such as FluxBox or Window Maker. Enlightenment has
the concept of epplets, which are similar to dockapps.

Window managers[1] deserve their own screen shots, where you would want the
whole desktop. X Display Managers[2] should be eligible, too.

 [1] I count roughly forty-three window managers.
 [2] Five of these.
