i had a quick look at the repo:
- there is still copy of moc's c++ parser in there. not much to do about
  it at this point, except that repc is mostly redundant with moc to
  start with.
  - why not make it an output mode of moc? or at least, it would seem
    sensible to make moc output an intermediate json file with the meta
    info it extracted, and still leave the code generation to repc -
    that would remove the double parsing, and always ensure consistency.
  - i see that repc creates qdatastream operators for q_enums & co. -
    that *really* seems like generic moc stuff.
  - please verify that improvements to moc and the meta type system have
    not obsoleted some repc functionality in the first place.
- was that promised discussion vs. qtsystems actually ever had?
- formalities:
  - lots of build system hacks for obsolete qt versions
  - lagging in coding style practice (replace foreach, other c++11
