Here's a post I did to kde-devel on this.  It has a screen shot of the widget 
being used in kSirc:

Since I would really like QTabWidget to do be nicer, I took a good look.  I 
replaced the QTabWidget in ksirc with the KTabWidget.  I put a screenshot 
online at

I'm glad to say all major features just worked out of the box.  That's really 
good work.  Didn't check the focus bugs which I have with QTabWidget though.

I don't really like the button look, I would much prefer tabs.  The bold makes 
it hard to tell which tab is the current one.  

Keep up the good work!
