Apparently my kmail version is either too old or too new (or too tweaked by 
Mandriva ?) and I don't have this in my configuration dialog :)

But in the case of filters, it is mostly sliders, comboxbox, and sometime 
checkbox, just run gimp/krita and you can see that. And they are stack in 
QHLayoutManager (or whatever is the equivalent name in GTK+). And what I see 
in the gimp is total inconsitency between all filters configuration widgets. 
If you have a way to avoid that for krita (especially for external 
developements) I would like to know how.

And anyway, as boud has already decide, I don't think we will ever see 
automatic ui for filters :(
