I agree but I will first see what I can do with the C++ ISO standards. On
the other hand I am more targeting QML because QWidgets are fine already so
I assume:
- QML compiler converts QML into C++
- Fornux C++ Superset could then inject its memory manager
- Compile the resulting code

It’s just a matter of making sure QML doesn’t use nested structures.
