Nope, we couldn't. QTella doesn't have any buttons on their tabs. They 
have static pixmaps looking just like buttons. They use plain QTabBar. 
KTabWidget as a child of QTabWidget also doesn't make any sense. 
QTabBar and QTabWidget are way to limited to inherit from them. The 
list of QTab's is private, so is drawing of the arrow buttons in the 
corner. We would have to create a whole new tabwidget from the scratch 
which is what I started doing some time ago, but I postponed all my 
work on it. I'll start working on it again once 3.1 is out.


Asking if computers can think is like asking if submarines can swim.
