As the engine gets the widget that is passed in you can do crazy hacks
based on that. I have actually implemented a hack like this for the
toolbar once. But to get this right what one needs is a way for
applications to hint where it makes sense to draw buttons connected, or
where it should not happen.

So this is something that I think needs a generic API to set hints (to
some extend attaching data to the widget could work today), and a
carefully designed specification that both themes and applications can
implement independently.
