2 things to do.

1) Email the development(cc'd) or qt-interest list. The qt-components
list is defunct and should have been shut down by now. Then you can
see what other people think of the idea.

I like the idea of the touch spinner (which could just be a
touch-variant of the SpinBox). But the customizable delegate combobox
is either already there, hidden behind the Styles API, or so custom
that they may as well write the combobox part as well as the fully
custom delegate.

2) To be even more considered, show some code on gerrit (or github or
similar, if you've already written versions of these components that
you want to share as an example).
