that's certainly one possibility. would be nice in a number of other 
situations also.

would require some modifications to qframe, obviously. will pass it by some TT 
people and see what they think.

that these things do not look Perfect with all styles, and probably never 
will. that there are ways to degrade the look 'n feel by turning on/off 
certain features via the config dialogs.

it allows us to sidestep issues like "if there were lines on the splitters 
then.." because we can simply mandate "splitters must (or must not) have 
border lines".
