Yes, but it should happen automatically like in Qt3/KDE3, rather than requiring
the user to manually position toolbars N times. We want to -allow- that, but not
to require it. By default the toolbars should be laid out next to each other, without
useless empty space or not-enough-space (which leads to hiding toolbar buttons)

I discussed this with Rafael and came up with two testcases showing obvious
misbehavior in Qt's toolbar layouting, I sent them both to qt-bugs. Plus a
higher level email about toolbar layouting and what we need from it. We'll see.
