The Qt Model/View framework is being forgotten for Plasma widgets. I like the
folderview's panel mode and I wanted to make a generic quick access widget
similar. If it were made as a View, anybody else could plug any model to it.
Code less, create more ;)
Think of the konsole and konqueror profiles widgets. Or Chani's desktop menu
launcher. They seem out of place, not styled. I would love to have them to
look as good as folderview.
I already considered using any view and setting a custom QItemDelegate. Then I
found QStyledItemDelegate and the already existing, but incomplete, plasma
style. I think this last pair is the best and most flexible solution.
* The private Plasma::Style should be extended to let the scrollarea and view
items be painted in the current theme style.
* Export the different view widgets to Plasma.
