ok, back home for 2-3 days, there are still two things to deal with:
1) now when the AppletHandle moves an Applet it emits the applet's signal 
appletTransformedByUser. It can emit it because it is a friend of Applet, but 
now we need to find an other way to allow every subclass of AbstractHandle to 
emit it.

2) What should the ControlElement class be? A QGraphicsObject or maybe a simple 
QObject with some mousePress() method called by the handle when it wants to pass 
the input to the right element?
