This was also briefly discussed at the meeting we had at the MeeGo
Conference. We had some other features higher on the priority list,
and the fact that the framework changed to QT didn't make things
easier for us.
It's worth noting that QT supports translations to multiple lengths,
which is something we could take advantage of. However, I'm not sure
QML supports this or not.
