Hey Lutz,

cool to see others starting to use the QWebChannel :)

Sadly, you arrive at a bad point in time, as the QWebChannel code is currently 
quite a bit in flux. But today, all big changes got approved, so now it's just 
a matter of time to get them through CI and integrated properly.

Once that is done, your change above is not required anymore, as I told you 
there already.

Please stay tuned until the changes landed, and/or manually cherry pick the 
open changes [1] into your local checkout and start using the stuff now. I'm 
currently working on proper QtWebKit integration, and once that has landed no 
QtWebSockets will be required for the "normal" usecase.

Feel free to join #qtwebengine, where most of the discussion around 
QtWebChannel takes place.
