It looks great! Especially with setValueOnWidgetUpdate=True, as I understand, 
I'm able to make interactive settings (reading values in the runtime, setting 
one widget depending on other widget value), without any need of direct access 
to widgets, I mean staying purely within this layer of abstraction. It's 
really nice.

Of course, I understand graying out widgets and changing list of combobox' 
items still needs direct access.

Similarly to Alex, I prefer interactive and aesthetically hand-polished gui ;) 
So for my plugins I only can imagine the common settings tree as something 
additional, an 'advanced' mode. Anyway, let's talk about it on the HF!
