There's been a huge amount of progress towards
fixing that. Nowadays the delta between gtk+ and maemo-gtk+ is
much much smaller. Tommi Komulainen presented on that this GUADEC.

And as Riku pointed out Hildon now runs on stock gtk+ with minimal patching.
Lucas Rocha [2] and Karoliina Salminen [3] had presentations on the 
Hildon Desktop
this GUADEC. We're not yet 100% there but things have progressed to the 
were it has been possible for Ubuntu Mobile to adopt Hildon.
