AFAIR, it is not possible to do this properly without Qt5, and an
arbitrary scalingfactor isn't the Qt way. (See hdpi guide)

Regarding the drawing of the widget itself, I already have this on my
stash (and that's not as easy as drawing a triangle). It just comes to
a dead end when you realize Qt only provides square and lines
primitives for drawing controls. There's no way to get any style
property such as colors & emboss level to match current theme. (unless
we get rid of the non square shape).
