Good point, and anyway, the comparison would be done by traversing the tree of the later version and for each function node found, search the tree of the earlier version to find the corresponding function. The search is done by looking for the QWidget class node and then searching the children of that node for the function. So the structure of the tree of the earlier version doesn't matter.
