Stylesheets and plasma widgets

I have a plasmoid (in Python) which uses Plasma.ToolButton widgets. I would
like to allow the user to override the default style (taken from the plasma
theme) of the buttons (for instance, to change font/size/colors).
I have two problems/misunderstandings I need help with here:
- First, I find that if I give the button a stylesheet using setStyleSheet(),
the style sheet in use is totally blown away. Is there any way to just append
or override settings of the stylesheet in use? I tried this:
button = Plasma.PushButton()
bstyle = button.styleSheet()
bstyle += "font: 8pt;"
But that doesn't work -- it sets the font size alright, but the other style
aspects set by the plasma theme (font, color, etc) are gone. Interestingly,
button.styleSheet() returns an empty string.
- Second, if I must override the entire style sheet for the button, how do I
set the hover style of the button? setStyle() on the button object only seems
to allow me to set the default style for the button. I would assume I could
do this in the "master" stylesheet if I could access it, but I'm not sure how
to get at it or change it. Is there an object I can call styleSheet() on to
get the "master" stylesheet in use?
Or... are style sheets just the wrong way to go about this?
