As far as I understand the question is not how to give the GUI a
typical 'C++' brand (or 'boost' for that matter), but to be uniform
across all platforms.
In other words, the power to style the application should be given
to the application developer, not the underlaying OS.

(As some have noted it is even better if that styling power can be
shifted even closer to the user as is done e.g. with Qt, but not
relying on any 'native' style is certainly a first step.)
