correct me if i'm wrong, but i thought we had decided to have all widget
inherit Plasma::LayoutItem directly?
this solves the problem of multiply inheriting GraphicsItem, which would be
problematic for things such as QGraphicsTextItem, and keeps the hierarchy
we can use the parent/child relationships that already exist in QGraphicsScene
the difference in API that i see right now between LayoutItem and Widget is
that widget adds geometry, setGeometry, updateGeometry, invalidate (ugly
name, btw =) and resize.
invalidate can easily go away and the rest could be moved up into LayoutItem .
the additional parent/child relationships seem to duplicate what is already
there in QGraphicsScene really.
i'd like to see us keep it simple and move with LayoutItem if at all possible.
