I for one welcome this change. I always cringed when I wrote code such as

    QCOMPARE(getSomeQUint64(), 0)

and it would fail to compile, forcing me to write ugly code such as

    QCOMPARE(getSomeQUint64(), quint64(0))

I've also come across code that failed to compile some platforms, since it 
used something like 0l or 0ll which did not match whatever platform-specific 
type was used on the lhs...

So, from my side a clear +1!
