FTR: Attempt at a workaround (existed for QVector<QPoint(F)> already):
Now, _that_ is one ugly hack. And only necessary because non-polymorphic 
classes were exported. Open (perceived) beauty in one header thus creates 
hidden ugliness in the guts of Qt. I'd prefer getting rid of hidden ugliness 
even at the price of a tiny bit less of (perceived) beauty (our headers are so 
full of macros, what harm does one more do, anyway? :).
