However, even though Qt Quick Controls (and Qt Quick in general) are both
very nice, I think that a big missing part is CSS-like properties, that is,
properties that would apply to whole subtrees of QML components easily.
Ableton has graciously provided some code for this :

syntaxic solution part of Qt proper...
