Out of curiosity, why do you want to use exclusively one or the other?
Is it an issue of space for all the libraries?

Whether an app is KDE or Gnome or Foo doesn't even enter my mind when
I'm looking for a tool -- I just look for an app that fulfils my needs
in terms of functionality.  I have no qualms about running KDE apps from
a Gnome environment or vice versa.  Am I missing something?
