Thanks André. It's things like this that make me wonder if we have chosen
the right framework from time to time. Given that the Win32 ListView has
all this functionality and much more what Qt has to offer. But then Win32
API has no concept of signals/slots like this, but one could certainly
mimic it using the Windows message loop.
