every theme then needs to implement it and hopefully provide a common means to 
configure it in a sane fashion. contrast this to the previous "implemented in 
one place" approach. i'm sure that some styles will simply not implement this 
hint "properly".

would be nice if this were something that could be set in a qsettings entry 
which was read in as a default on style creation. but that would likely mean 
making QStyle::styleHint non-pure-virtual. =/ 

we could make a KStyle class that does this and have all of our styles use 
that, but this does not cover style authors who want a style that doesn't 
rely on KDE.

and on that topic, hopefully QTreeWidget will be made to be non-slow in 4.2 
too. try adding 100,000 items to a QTreeWidget and watch how adding slows to 
a crawl =/

kiconview supports "select on hover"; konqi provides it as an option for 
instance. i don't know how important that is for accessibility?
