There is an alternative, of course, if the requirement of grouping with 
groupboxes is dropped. Maybe it was my fault if it has been kept in the 
guidelines -- I suggested that the labeled sections could be automatically 
indented with proper styles, which is true, but I didn't realize that 
alignment across groups was needed.

In this way, grouping would be done with a label (maybe using a bold font) 
spanning a whole row, and the widgets could be aligned in the second column.
