> specific design purposes, can be very useful for small and easy
> modifications to the widget appearance (and some other things, since they
> support qproperties), and can be used to do fancy tricks without manual
> painting and/or QStyle overrides, but be careful: some widgets (usually
> composite widgets, like spinboxes, combo, sliders) require to be fully
> implemented in the stylesheet, otherwise they won't work.
