Uh, with an X window or whatever. GTK and Qt are both X toolkits

But it's only of any use at all if the host and plugin know what the
void pointer points to. Presumably the extension provides a way to
communicate that; otherwise, it either really is a GTK UI extension
(because there are GTK plugins that use it already, so all hosts must
assume the unknown void pointer is a GTK widget pointer), or else it's
just a very fancy segmentation fault extension.
Anyway, even if you can write plugins using any toolkit and run them
in a host that uses any toolkit, I posit that a UI extension in which
the UIs only appear if the plugin and host happen to be using the same
toolkit is not a very useful one.
