Just a query about the coding convention around inclusion of private headers 
as specified at:


It states:

If you need to include private headers, be careful. Use the following syntax, 
irrespective of which module or directory whatever_p.h is in.

 #include <private/whatever_p.h>

The issue is that this could lead to collisions. Is it OK to use:

 #include <QtModule/private/whatever_p.h>
