The biggest problem with this issue (widget styles), is that it is
inherently technical and complex, with how many widget styles in Qt use
inheritance (from these other "ugly" themes) to make it easier to implement
a style, that requires a technical solution.

And while this thread has gone
way past useful at this point and may not have been started correctly, I
think some of the technical solutions presented here may not have surfaced
if this particular problem had been solved otherwise, at the expense of a
slightly noisy day on a single mailing list.
