Actually having the Qt code style as public document proved to be 
extremely useful in the past to quickly shutdown this inevitable and 
highly annoying bike shed discussion about code style that happens at 
the start of every other project. Also in the future I'd like to say:

"We do a Qt based project and for consistency I propose to follow the Qt 
code style: It's a good and proven style guide. Just read it 
http://wiki.qt.io/Coding_Conventions and then focus on real problems."

Thank you,
