That's perfectly fine, James. It's the other way around - if you start 
using setGeometry for ui elements (not windows), something is 
conceptually broken in your code. Badly. 

We're using layout manager for a reason. You don't *want* to know their 
innards, unless you have a strong masochistic background. Do you?
