they have a common base class, you know ...

  QLayout::linkDimension(QLayout *other, Qt::Orientation orientation = Qt::Horizontal)

(the second parameter is actually a flag field).

and for more fine-grained control one could consider (not sure this makes

  QLayoutItem::linkDimension(QLayoutItem *other, Qt::Orientation orientation = Qt::Horizontal)

but then, i wonder whether you are fixing the right problem to start
with. usually, one would create a big master layout, and embed
sublayouts spanning multiple cells in the areas that are not supposed to
be contrained by the grid.
