Dont ask me any details about it, but I know Qt can load Designer files (ui) 
at run time and generate forms (widgets) out of them. These forms are of 
course not compiled and therefore *the widgets themselves* cannot have any 
intelligence... but, there seems to be a way of binding these "dumb" widgets 
with a "controller" that can process the information. 

with that and the QT Properties we should be able (at least in theory) to 
implement that.
