By the way, here's another related question. I figured out yesterday
that the TitledSeparatorItem class is not defined in
kits/interface/MenuItem.cpp, as I expected, but in
kits/tracker/Utilities.cpp instead. Should it perhaps be moved to the
Interface Kit's MenuItem.cpp instead? I'd think Tracker is not the only
likely consumer for it...

I haven't looked at it, but a public API has much higher requirements than a private one. For one, it must be consistent with the rest of the API, and also, it needs to allow for future changes (ie. FBC protection). It should be convenient and flexible enough for everyone.

Having said that, since it's private API right now, it could stay private API in libbe.so, too - moving something to libbe.so is usually not a problem, as everything links against it anyway.
