They would all be nice. :-)
Dump to a file might be a good one:
    QPixmap p = QPixmap::grabWidget( m_view );
    p.save( "xxx.png", "PNG" );
would be a great feature for writing docs as you could display the dialogs
from an app easily and grab them. It might even be possible in future to make
it annotate the image with the tooltip and what's this texts. :-)

I think you've got the big issues, the style handling was the big one for me.
The only thing that springs to mind is that it would be nice to have an
action to forcibly kill the dialog (in case someone forgot to give you an ok
button). You should probably add yourself to the about data too.

Great! I'm glad they like it.
