How about this?

|template<  typename  T>
typename  std::vector<T>::iterator
    insert_sorted(  std::vector<T>  &  vec,  Tconst&  item)
     return  vec.insert
             std::upper_bound(  vec.begin(),  vec.end(),  item),

Something like this should work just as well on QVector, right? If you 
are doing multiple inserts, perhaps you should keep the inserts outside 
the main vector while you make them, and only at the end do a single
