[Qgis-developer] Lineedit with clear button

Hi all,

there are several dialogs in QGIS where we have filters, for example
Expression builder, Style manager, Plugin manager etc. This is great
feature, but to remove a filter one has to erase text (select it with
mouse and press Del or using Backspace).

I think it is much better to provide small button to clear filter. So I've
implemented new widget QgsFilterLineEdit that provides lineedit with
builtin clear button. You can find screenshots here:
 - without text [0]
 - with text [1]

If there are no objections I can push code to master.

BTW, there is also similar ticket in SEXTANTE tracker [2]
