[Interest] size policies, layouts, and size hints

Hello all,

Imagine a horizontal layout with 4 QLabels in it. The various QLabels have 
different amounts of text that can vary quite a bit and can be changed 
dynamically. I've been unable to get the horizontal layout/size policies 
to size the QLabels how I would like. What I would like is for the amount 
of 'extra' space to be divided up evenly between the QLabels. Any of the 
size policies I try end up giving extra space to the smaller QLabels 
*before* the bigger ones. I'm fine with subclassing QLabel and 
reimplementing QLabel::sizeHint() if necessary, but don't know what I 
would need to do there. Below is a picture of my situation. Thanks for any
