The commits above replace certain const member functions in QString,
QByteArray and QImage with a pair of ref-qualified member functions (a const &
and an &&) so that in-place conversion can be performed if possible.
Those changes are technically source-incompatible: if you take the address of
one of those functions, your code will stop compiling. This was found in
The change is transparent for regular calls of those functions.
Given the benefits awarded by those changes and the fringe uses of taking PMFs
to those functions, I'm going to ask that we keep accepting this type of
changes, with a proper entry in the changelog.
