There are certainly quite a few areas of the qtnetwork patch that I think
make the code significantly easier to read. I don't think I'd apply
everything from it, eg. some of the changes from int to auto just make
things less clear in my eyes, but other parts are a massive win. Thanks for
sharing this, it certainly make me think we should be actively using it.
