Looks very nice. Do you think it's also possible to disable/enable these 
actions when applicable? Might be rather hard since you would need to track 
the "has selection" state of the focus widget in order to properly 
enable/disable cut & copy. Would be good to think a bit about that so that a 
Qt 4 solution could accomodate that as well.

Something along the lines of moving hasSelectedText() (Text only??) and 
selectionChanged() into this new Qt base class. And isReadOnly() in order to 
enable/disable paste.
