I'm not familiar with QML, so I apologize if this is a silly question,
but how much (if any) would this restrict the capabilities of
third-party task manager widgets?  We have widgets like smooth tasks,
fancy tasks, and flexible tasks that implement a lot of functionality
that is lacking in the default task widget.  Would they still be able
to implement all of this functionality in QML if you add the stuff to
the data engine?
