interesting note on implementing hover interfaces: mouse over interfaces often
require the use of qtimers to make completely sure you don't somehow lose a
hover out event which happens way too often with Qt (my fave way to reproduce
is to go into an item, open a context menu, then fellow the context menu out
of the item, then dismiss the context menu with the keyboard; this often
exposes these kinds of bugs).
so while i love hover interfaces, they can be brittle. just as a side note for
those who may go do such things so they can avoid the same annoyances i've
been through perhaps. ;)

one issue that may be a bit concerning with this and line edits is that they
are often very wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiide. and the user is
like to mouse over the part with the text. and the clear button will be waaaay
the other side. hitting the clear button in such a situation can be a little
frustrating as you point, move, click.
but it might work just perfectly, too :) someone should give it a try...
