::Like Urutapu says, Gretchen's method is "brutally murder everyone and everything that falls in its parameters for misfortune" whereas Madokami/Godoka addresses the problem without anyone needing to die (though we could argue her taking the grief away from mahou shoujos ultimately leaves their soul gems empty, and therefore, their next battle is almost assuredly their last). She didn't fix anything else about the world-- there is still tons and tons of unrelated misfortune. Just no more witches.
