There are a number of problems with QFormLayout too though, as soon as
you try to introduce any grouping (and therefore a nested layout for
the items in the frame around the group) the alignment of your items
goes to hell. Unfortunately that seems inherent in the whole approach
QFormLayout takes. Whilst it's good for very simple dialogs, I've not
found it suitable for non-trivial ones.
