As already mentioned: *when* a widgetset has an LCL interface (API), 
it's just another widgetset - no problem.

But when a widgetset like FireMonkey comes with its own API, defined by 
Delphi and *incompatible* with VCL/LCL, any number of problems can 
occur. Different components can have the same class names, LCL 
components will not fit as clients into forms or controls of FireMonkey 
etc. :-(
