No (of course not!). I think Radim means if you have GRASS installed, then
install QGIS, you can access GRASS data from QGIS straight away.

Radim did not write QGIS; it was already existing.

ISTR a year or two ago there was some kind of a consensus on the mailing
list that GTK would be good for a GRASS GUI. But nobody has written a
GRASS GUI. If you want it, go ahead and do it yourself. (that is the way
GRASS development gets done). :-)
