In fact that is more or less what I want to do. Simply I want to present 
the whole thing as just one QSlider to the parent.

My first idea was therefore to inherit QSlider and add a second "slider" 
consisting of two arrows and a line edit.

I think I will inherit from QAbstractSlider and implement everything 
from there. I could have saved some work if I could have inherited from 
QSlider, but it seems its painting interferes with any layout added to it.
