Thanks, but that doesn't make it easy to get an overview of common use 
cases though as you don't know which ones are common without looking 
through many files. I just didn't know if I was missing documentation 
somewhere but it seems not.

It's easy to miss the exact thing you are after when looking through 
like this too. I didn't know I could put a "condition" in a "sources". 
Now I do.

Thanks for the tips. I had been looking in qtbase/src/corelib and gui.
