It will, but personaly I can't see a better solution ... 
So, either we break the existing QML apps that used scoped enums in C++ (which 
is useless, because in QML side you'll get name clashing) or we keep it as it 
is now and never "fix" it. I'd like the first option :). 
Of course if we can find a better solution to have them both is even better !
