Hi guys

Just a quick poll: which order do you think is more intuitive?

Option A:
qobjectdefs.h:69:20: error: expected unqualified-id before ‘protected’
 #   define signals protected
<stdin>:1:6: note: in expansion of macro ‘signals’

Option B:
<stdin>:1:6: error: expected unqualified-id
bool signals;
qobjectdefs.h:69:20: note: expanded from macro 'signals'
#   define signals protected
