Sorry for the late reply. My initial reaction to this when I first 
noticed it is eventually I would like flat groupboxes to actually look 
like regular groupboxes without the rest of the frame... that is, use 
divider ("sunken") lines (either above, or better I think on either side 
of) with centered text.

I do think the font should be the same for both types of groupboxes.

Hey! Where's the witty punchline?
