That is pretty nifty. 

The other thing I'd like to see is an editable table widget that knows what 
type (string, date, int, float, etc) each of its columns contains and how to 
do conversions transparently, like your widgets do. Preferably it'd also have 
all the necessary logic in place so that it only creates as many rows as are 
visible no matter how large the data set is and still knows how to scroll 
smoothly through a much larger data set.
