even worse are widgets like QTextEdit where the interesting children, in this 
case a context menu, is created and destroyed on demand and on the fly making 
intercepting it and setting flags on it properly annoying. unless Qt gets a 
way to mark a widget as "make all children not embedded" i foresee us having 
to subclass things like KTextEdit and reimplement QWidget::event, responding 
on ChildAdded events and using that subclass in Plasma::TextEdit (rinse, 
repeat for other widgets. :/ )
