Another question that springs to mind is what should the QNetworkReply
object returned to the user reflect while the redirects are going on?

Eg: What should the download progress signal show? should we keep
emitting it for intermediate requests too? Similarly, what should
other APIs like url(), operation() show, info about the 1st or the
final request?

Your thoughts?

If this gets unnecessarily complex to be done from within the QNAM
framework, maybe we can have some sort of a 'wrapper' class handling
redirects using QNR's public APIs. We could possibly keep such a class
in the qt-solutions repository if needed.

Oh and Merry X'mas everyone! :)
