I didn't post the code as it needs some cleanup (there are some trials 
commented out, etc.).
But here it is:

This codes add the toolbars inside a custom widget instead of adding them as 
regular toolbars.

The idea is that createContainer is called for each UI element, eg. for each 
toolbar. You can  get the name there and simply not call 
KXMLGUIBuilder::createContainer to not insert a specific toolbar.

In your case you probably need to store a pointer to the old guibuilder object 
and call that one instead of the parent, because you already have a factory.
