If something must be done for digiKam, it's in libkdcraw where similar
widget exist, but of course based on slider version (KIntNumInput and
KDoubleNumInput class):



Changing these widget here will patch digiKam and kipi-plugins at the
same time. Some adjustments must be done i think in others place to
use these widgets everywhere.
