It's somewhat a coincidence, because the code was completely rewritten between 
Qt 4 and 5. However, the people who wrote it inspired themselves on the older 
Qt 4 code.

That's called qev and you can find in qttools/src/qev. It's not built by 

But I really meant xev. I just want to know if xev receives any extra events
