Never done it myself. But Q*Application is clearly marked as derived
from QObject in the docs, so users can definitely expect it to behave
the same as all other QObjects and clean up it's children properly.

Either is OK I think, with preference for 1.a). Note: these are not
mutually exclusive - we could have the patch integrated & a warning in
the docs that this is not encouraged.

Disclaimer: I'm not a reviewer, nor approver, barely a contributor
even, so feel free to ignore my opinion.
