You have my support when time permits. I know Qt like the back of my hand
and I keep playing around with their designs to implement flexible widgets.
I just don't have enough time for further in-depth development.
A template based widget interface would be great for SDI / MDI windows,
recursive container widgets, ownership, layout management, policy based
input / output (string, wstring, stringstream, filestream, pipestream,
It is hard to believe sometimes this is not yet done. ;)
