in previous versions of qt, you could have used qApp.mainWidget() but
that has been removed in qt4. so you either have to keep a reference to
the main window yourself, or use the qwidget hierarchy to access the
relevant parent widget. presumably, you set the mdi area as the central
widget of the main window. so an mdi child window could get the main
window via child.mdiArea().parentWidget().
