It could, but I think the interesting part of qev is to show how it 
interpreted the events into Qt.

Anyway, qev isn't really being developed. The last commit to it was mine a

pointer addresses (10411e51782f7274da626bec01ec3ab8cae8723b qev: Actually

We're lucky that whoever did the modularisation in 2011 copied it over (thank

its Qt 5 or Qt 4 history besides buildsystem and copyright header changes.
