Currently this is possible, but only within different top level windows.
Mixing within one top level is something thatI really would like to enable
with Qt 5.1. Maybe it's possible to do this even as an add-on (a
QQmlWidget class) if you're not afraid to hook into some of the private
API of QtQuick.
