if the view remains in libplasma, the style can be extended, sure. that may 
not be necessary, though, depending on the approach. e.g. if you intend to 
create a QGraphicsProxyWidget that proxies a QListView then yes, you'd need a 
style. but i wonder what advantage there would be to that vs just creating a 
nice Plasma::ListView that is a simple QGraphicsWidget?
