class LabelWordWrapWide : public QLabel
// Label that word-wraps its text, and prefers to be wide rather than tall.

virtual QSize sizeHint() const override;
// Returns the size of non-word-wrapped (unwrapped) text.
// ... "I would like to be very wide and not very tall."
// - QLabel::heightForWidth() gives a sensible answer; no need to override.
// But sometimes helpful to see when it's being used:
virtual bool hasHeightForWidth() const override;
virtual int heightForWidth(int width) const override;
// - QLabel::minimumSizeHint() gives a sensible answer (the size of the
// smallest individual word); no need to override.
// ... "I need to be big enough to contain my smallest word."
// ... EXCEPT that once resizeEvent() has used setFixedHeight(), it
// returns that as the minimum.
// ... and then it caches that.
virtual QSize minimumSizeHint() const override;
// - However, even with a size policy of Maximum/Fixed/hasHeightForWidth,
// the label's height does not increase as its width is decreased, unless
// you override resizeEvent().

// - resizeEvent() does the trick, but it isn't normally called when, for
// example, we set our text. So catch other events:
bool event(QEvent* e) override;
// Set the text of the label.
void setText(const QString& text);
// Returns the height of our text, given a width.

// - Widgets shouldn't need to cache their size hints; that's done by layouts
// for them. See
// - However, for performance... we'll cache some things.
// In particular, word-wrapping labels can get asked to calculate their
// width for a great many heights (sometimes repeatedly).
// - Moreover, the application of stylesheets varies with time (so calls
// can be made prior to, and then after, application of
// stylesheets). So the caches must be cleared whenever things like that
