[Development] unique_ptr and Qt, Take 2

It seems I am having problems expressing my thoughts, people don’t understand what I am trying to say=(

What I've meant is to have one allocation instead of two, yes, exactly.

Back to the topic - in case we really want to support the "stack case", I’d say shared_ptr is the only option (in combination with enable_shared_from_this which is already a kinda part of QObject, as mentioned above)
